John Singleton - Author Picture

John Singleton - Author

John Singleton was sent to a grim boarding school where, he says, you were bullied stupid and ritually humiliated - which may have something to do with the fictional appearance of Lazarus House and Big Mother in his novel Star. He then became an accountant, a disastrous move, and was quickly back studying English and training to be a teacher. He spent the rest of his professional life teaching kids and students the power of language and the pleasures of reading and writing. He is the author of Star, Skinny B, Skaz & Me and Angel Blood, powerful novels for young adults, and lives with his wife in Kent.
