About the Author
Gemma Coles was one of the kids you would see tumbling Head Over Heels along the road "why walk on your feet when you can walk on your hands?" This enthusiasm never left her, leading to a career teaching gymnastics where, along the way, she learnt a great number of hints and tips that she uses every day teaching the sport. She hopes to share this knowledge with as many people as possible through this series of books. "I hope you get as much enjoyment from these book as I have had writing them."
