About the Author
Tereza Anteneová is orginally from Prague. Tereza was inspired by the long summer days that she spent with her father at their cottage in the countryside, lying in the grass and watching the wildlife; telling each other stories about the lives, hopes and dreams of all the animals they saw.
Now she is a TV news reporter, TV presenter, radio broadcaster and a PR professional with over 20 years of experience as a media expert. Tereza has written many political and women's columns for magazines, newspapers and websites and she provides presentation skills training for the Government Legal Department in London and around the UK.
She is also part of the team at The Centre for Political & Diplomatic Studies in London which helps countries to prepare for the EU presidency. She accompanied the Czech Prime Minister to the White House to cover his Presidential meetings, and asked President Barack Obama questions for her news channel both in the Oval Office and during his state visits to the Czech Republic. And she is currently an official British contributor to the Czech Radio and CNN/Prima News and Czech TV, where she comments on British politics.
Tereza lives in London, with her fiancé John and their two cats, Meowglish and Johnson.
Spikey is available in paperback (£9.99), hardback (£12.99) and ebook (£5.99) at all good bookshops and online retailers.
