Annie Dalton, born 18 January 1948 in Dorset, is a British children's author, perhaps best known for writing the Agent Angel series, formerly known as the Angels Unlimited series, and now retitled The Angel Academy.
Dalton grew up as an only child in the English countryside during the 1950s. Her father was not always around, but when he was, he would tell her fantastic stories, often with her as the principal character. Her father left the family for good. Dalton missed him and his stories, which led her to the fantasy section at her local library, thus sparking lifelong love of fiction.
Dalton now lives in Norfolk. She has three children, Anna, Reuben and Maria (the inspiration for the first Angels Unlimited book, Winging It), and two grandchildren, Sophie and Isabelle.
