Robin Jarvis - Author

Robin Jarvis started writing in 1988 and quickly acquired a reputation as a bestselling children's author with his acclaimed Deptford Mice trilogy and the Whitby Witches. A multi-talented artist, he not only writes some thrilling stories but also illustrates all his own books.

In 1988, when he was a model maker by profession, Robin Jarvis had just moved to Deptford and was busy working on a huge green model alien for Channel 4! He used to produce sketches of the area and strangely enough, of rodents, and when an editor saw these drawings she asked whether Robin had a story to go with them. Exchanging modelling tools for a pen, Robin produced the result that we know today, and from there his body of children's fantasy adventures began to grow….

Shortlisted in the past for the Carnegie Prize and Smarties Award, Robin has won the Lancashire Libraries Children's Book of the Year Award twice and has a cult following among children. He lives in Greenwich, London.
