A superb storyteller, Ronda is probably best known for her classic series of Lighthouse Keeper picture books, illustrated by husband David Armitage. Over thirty years after publication, all eight titles remain in print and carry on selling strongly. They have been translated into more than ten languages, with two titles adapted for theatre.
Ronda now collaborates with other illustrators to produce outstanding picture books. Titles include A Mitey Bitey Creature (Walker Books), A Very Strange Creature (Orchard), winner of the Coventry Inspiration Book Awards; A New Home for a Pirate (Puffin) and the Small Knight and George stories (Orchard).
Ronda lives in Sussex.
“Every now and then a book appears that seems to have an almost breathtaking number of successful ingredients. Such a book is The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch.”

‘A rollicking but tender story about expectations and bravery…’

'Delicious drama builds in this hilarious tale brought brilliantly to life by the read-aloud sound effects of Ronda Armitage.' Toppsta on A Mitey Bitey Creature
