Dan is an author of nonsense, mostly. Some like it though, which is good enough for him. Yarns include Here Lies Love, The Caseworker's Memoirs, and The Black Petal.

Dan lives in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire (England) with his young daughter.

Dan grew up reading Enid Blyton's The Famous Five series, secretly coming up with his own inventive adventures, and R.L Stine's The Goosebump series, before turning to the works of Philip Pullman, Eoin Colfer and Marcus Sedgwick and slipping away into alternate realities.

It was a fab read. I'm looking forward to the next read. When Second Time Around came as paperback I made sure I moved all the copies in my local Tesco to the top of the 'New In' section. I extended the facing too :)

Shame I didn't see Rasputin's Shadow in there. It really is the best in the series so far.

Thanks for getting in touch(less)

Hi Mike, Thanks for your question! It's great to hear from you.

I'm glad you found Ana's little tale so enjoyable. I'm currently writing the third and final book in my fantasy trilogy (The Black Petal) at the moment, but you certainly haven't seen the last of Ana. She will be returning for *fingers crossed* a full length novel.

The audiobook of Ana's Trial is currently in production and is being narrated by the fantastic Barbara Nevins Taylor. She's done such a great job at bringing Ana to life. I'm hoping audiobook listeners will enjoy the story just as much as you seemed to.

“What is love worth in this broken world? Nothing!” he spat. “Absolutely nothing. Love won’t feed you. Love won’t rescue you from starvation. Grow up, Abbey. I didn’t raise you to be half-witted and so mentally defective.”
Dan Thompson, Here Lies Love

“Face up to reality. Do you see happy families huddled together? No, you don’t. This is a dog-eat-dog world, Abbey. Don’t pretend you didn’t already know that. You need to cut the baggage and attachments of the heart. Weakness, the lot of it.”
Dan Thompson, Here Lies Love

“You soppy thing,” Tristan giggled, wiping away her tears. “Life is unforgiving and callous at the best of times, you need to learn how to forgive yourself of any misdemeanours. No one else is going to do it for you. Hold your head up high, Abbey, you’ve done nothing wrong.”
Dan Thompson, Here Lies Love

“He had hair that would terrify a comb and his face was one big scowl with a nose, two eyes and two ears seemingly added on as an after-thought.”
Ben Gavan, The Perilous Postman
