Michelle Paver was born in Central Africa, but came to England as a child. After gaining a degree in Biochemistry from Oxford University, she became a partner in a City law firm, but eventually gave that up to write full-time.

The hugely successful Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series arose from Michelle's lifelong passion for animals, anthropology and the distant past - as as well as an encounter with a large bear in a remote valley in southern California. To research the books, Michelle has traveled to Finland, Greenland, Sweden, Norway, Arctic Canada and the Carpathian Mountains. She has slept on reindeer skins, swum with wild orca (killer whales), and got nose-to-nose with polar bears - and, of course, wolves.

Michelle Paver isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but she does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from her feed.

Happy new year everyone! Here’s some important news for those of you who like to chat to Michelle – and each other – during each live monthly show, and who like to use Instagram.

Michelle Paver

“Fear is the loneliest feeling. You can be in a throng of people, but if you're afraid, you're on your own.”
Michelle Paver, Oath Breaker

“There's always a choice,' said Torak, and walked backward off the cliff.”
