Chris Wooding grew up in a small town where nothing much happened, so he started to write his own stories. By 19 he had his first book deal and, after studying English at university in Sheffield, he went on to write full-time. He wrote the nine-part Broken Sky children’s fantasy series and likes writing for young people and adults. Chris has travelled to lots of places all over the world, backpacking and playing music. He lives in London.
