Hello and welcome to my website!
If you came here on purpose, you’ll already know that this is the place to find out more about me, Marie Basting, and my book Princess BMX. If you didn’t, and you have no idea what you’re doing here, the next bus doesn’t leave for an hour, so why not take a look around.
PRINCESS BMX is Enchanted meets BMX! A funny debut for ages 7+ that brings the fairy tale bang up to date – get ready for some extreme adventurous fun!
Meet Ava, a radical new princess who splits her time between the skateparks of Camden, London and her home in the magical kingdom of Biscotti.
Follow her adventures as she finds her true talents in BMX and brings her brand-new powers back home. With black and white illustrations throughout by Flavia Sorrentino, young readers will delight in joining Ava on her adventures with her dog, Jeb.
When Marie Basting was fifteen, she was told by a careers advisor that girls like her don’t become writers. For a long time, she believed this. But then something magical happened and Marie finally came to realise that girls like her can do anything they want.
Princess BMX is her debut novel.
