Steve started writing after watching a BBC show about novels written for children. He realised that many of the books discussed in the show were not only his favourites, but had also had affected his attitude towards literature and reading in a way that was both profound and enduring.
His love of horror and fantasy led him to write the Changeling books, and he has since gone on to write Mutant City and Mutant Rising for Bloomsbury.
“I like the pace of the narrative you’re forced to adopt when writing for a teen or young adult audience,” Steve says. “It makes you seriously pare down your story, making it as direct and gripping as possible. I love books like that.”
Steve lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and two children. He still wants to be an astronaut when he grows up.
