Joss Stirling - Author

About the Author

Joss Stirling studied English at Cambridge and has always been fascinated by the idea that life is more than what we see on the surface. Researching Finding Sky saw her travelling in the characters' footsteps, from the awe-inspiring landscape of the Rockies, down a white-water river on a raft, and to the artificial pleasures of Las Vegas. Stealing Phoenix followed - to widespread acclaim - and her most recent novel, Seeking Crystal, was published in 2012.
