Damehood for Jacqueline Wilson

Among those receiving honours in the New Year list was children's writer Jacqueline Wilson, reports BBC News.
In a career spanning 35 years, she has sold more than 30 million books and, for the past four years, has been the most-borrowed author in British libraries.

Her most famous creation, Tracy Beaker, is a 10-year-old girl placed in a care home as a result of domestic violence.

But Wilson has written more than 80 books, many dealing with gritty social subjects such as teenage pregnancy, divorce and failed suicides.
