As he spent most of his teenage weekends on Dartmoor, Philip Gross has a feel for wild places and ideas. He now lives in Bristol and he finds that wildness in the city too. He knows about young people-years of visiting schools and bringing up his children while he was emerging as a writer of novels, poems, stage and radio plays, even the libretti for two children's operas.
Philip is a well-known poet for both adults and children, and his work has never been afraid to tackle real-life issues. The Wasting Game, shortlisted for the Whitbread Poetry Award, dealt with anorexia. The Lastling is an astonishing story of danger, greed and madness - and the adventure of a lifetime. The Storm Garden, is a gripping and intriguing novel about lies, truth, love and whether you can every really know anybody.
