About this author

Dan Smith is the author of Dry Season, Dark Horizons, The Child Thief, Red Winter and his first book for children - My Friend The Enemy.

Growing up, Dan led three lives. In one he survived the day-to-day humdrum of boarding school, while in another he travelled the world, finding adventure in the padi-fields of Asia and the jungles of Brazil. But the third life he lived in a world of his own, making up stories . . . which is where some people say he still lives most of the time!

Now settled in Newcastle with his wife and two children, Dan writes his stories down to share with both adults and children.
