Her work has been collected in many anthologies, including Roald Dahl's Book of Ghost Stories. Timperley also wrote several acclaimed radio and television scripts with her short story Harry adapted into film several times.

Loved this. Fantastic stories and the narrator was convincing and not hammy at all. Opened up the work of the author to me.
