One of the UK’s premiere authors of dark Gothic tales – for both adults and children – Michelle Paver was born in Malawi and raised in England. After a high-flying career as a partner in a big City law firm, Michelle gave up the City to follow her long-held dream of becoming a writer. She won thousands of fans thanks to her first series for children, THE CHRONICLES OF ANCIENT DARKNESSS, followed by by her brilliant five -part series set in the bronze age, GODS AND WARRIORS.
Her first ghost story for adults, DARK MATTER, was a UK bestseller and won massive praise from reviewers and readers, as did her second ghost story, THIN AIR. Her terrifying Victorian chiller WAKENHYRST was named a book of the year by The Times and was praised by everyone from The Observer to the BBC.
