N J Poulton became enchanted by words from a young age.

His main influences include Susan Cooper, Alan Garner and Neil Gaiman, who he believes reached the pinnacle of interweaving weird worlds with our own.

He always has a pile of unread books by his bed, runs so that he can eat what he wants, and is aware that his brain is more full of trivial film knowledge than is healthy.


He lives in Oxfordshire with his wife and son, and a cat called Sam and dog called Otto.
