He was born in Valetta, Malta, but as a kid moved foremost to Leicester and so to Bolton. After deriving a grade in biological science from the University of York, he returned to Leicester and got a occupation at the University of Leicester in their Pre-Clinical Sciences department.Originally his authorship was confined to vocals and he did n't turn to fiction until he was 32. His first piece of work was a 250,000 word narrative about polar bears for his married woman, Jay, to attach to a stuffed polar bear he had bought her as a Christmas present.He did n't compose another narrative for seven old ages, until he heard about a competition to compose a narrative for immature kids with a award of £2,000. The ensuing book, A Hole at the Pole, besides about polar bears, did n't win - but he sent it off to a publishing house, who accepted it.His first kids 's novel, Fly, Cherokee, Fly, was published in 1998 and later shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal. It was inspired by the clip he found an injured pigeon in Victoria Park and nursed it back to wellness at place. It became a household pet and lived for 14 old ages in a birdbox attached to the dorsum of the house. All of its progeny were given the names of different Native American folk, which is where the rubric of the book comes from. ) He has since written over 20 kids 's books, including Pawnee Warrior ( a subsequence to Fly, Cherokee, Fly ) , a collaborative novel with fellow kids 's writer Linda Newbery ( From E To You ) , and the best-selling, award-winning The Last Dragon Chronicles. His books frequently contain environmental subjects, and events based on things that have happened to him.In July 2002 he was awarded an honorary doctor's degree from the University of Leicester for his parts to kids 's literature.
