About the Author

Gill Lewis

Before she could walk, Gill Lewis was discovered force-feeding bread to a sick hedgehog under the rose bushes. Now her stories reflect her passion for wild animals in wild places. She draws inspiration from many of the people she has had the fortune to meet during her work as a vet, both at home and abroad.

Gill Lewis has a masters degree in Writing for Young People from Bath Spa University and won the 2009 course prize for most promising writer. Her first novel was snapped up for publication within hours of being offered to publishers.

She lives in Somerset with her young family and a motley crew of pets. She writes from a shed in the garden, in the company of spiders.

Gill’s first novel, Sky Hawk, has been nominated for a total of fifteen book awards including the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, the Red House Children’s Book Award, and the CILIP Carnegie Medal. Her second novel, White Dolphin, was shortlisted for the Centurion Book Award (Bath) and the Kernow Youth Book Award.
