Kieran Larwood is the author of Middle Grade children’s books Freaks (Chicken House), and the Five Realms fantasy series (Faber).
He lives on the Isle of Wight where he previously worked as a primary school teacher. Now he writes stories and drinks far too much coffee.
He won the 2011 Times Children’s Fiction competition with his debut novel, and the 2017 Blue Peter Book Award for Podkin One-Ear, his second book.
The Gift of Dark Hollow is out in September, and continues the legend of Podkin.
