Growing up, Dan Smith led three lives. In one he survived the day-to-day humdrum
of boarding school, while in another he travelled the world, finding adventure in
the padi fields of Asia and the jungles of Brazil. But the third life he lived in
a world of his own, making up stories . . . Which is where some people say he still
lives most of the time.
Now settled in Newcastle with his wife and two children, Dan writes books to share
with both adults and children.
