Professor Anna Craft (1961 - 2014)

It is with great sadness that we learned that Professor Anna Craft passed away on the 11th August 2014.  Anna was a founding Editor of Thinking Skills and Creativity, alongside Rupert Wegeriff, and had always been a pleasure to work with. She will be sorely missed by all those who knew her.
Our sincerest condolences go out to her family from all at Elsevier who worked with Anna over the past 9 years.
