About this author

In his earliest years, Grimsby-born Keith Gray turned from reluctant reader to passionate reader – then straight on to being a dedicated writer. He published Creepers (1996), which was shortlisted for the 1997 Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, in his early twenties, and since then has penned a number of award-winning and critically-acclaimed novels. He is a reviewer of teenage fiction for the Guardian and the Scotsman, became the first ever ‘Virtual Writer in Residence’ for the Scottish Book Trust in 2008 and has been a judge for most of the major children’s awards. Losing It (2010) is his most recent book for teens, a funny and memorable collection of short stories. Gray currently lives in Edinburgh with his partner.

“She's a librarian, Sim said. They're not teachers; don't give you half as much hassle. If there's a fire in the school and I've got to choose who I'm gonna save - a teacher or a librarian - the teacher's gonna burn every time.
(p. 24)”
