Christopher Edge grew up in Manchester where he spent most of his childhood in the local library, dreaming up stories. After studying English at university, he worked in a record shop, mostly listening to Bjork, before being led astray by the film Dead Poets Society into a short-lived career as an English teacher.

After leaving teaching he worked in publishing in a job that allowed him to read lots of brilliant children's books and, since 2007, has worked as a freelance publishing and education consultant working with organisations such as BookTrust and Oxford University Press on resources to inspire children as readers and writers.

His novel The Many Worlds of Albie Bright won the Brilliant Book Award as well as several other regional book awards and was also nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal, as was his novel The Jamie Drake Equation, which was also selected by The Times as one of the best children's books of 2017.

His other books include The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day, the Twelve Minutes to Midnight trilogy, and he is also the author of the inspirational creative writing guides How to Write Your Best Story Ever! and How To Be A Young Writer.

Christopher now lives in Gloucestershire with his wife and two children - and still spends most of his time in the local library, dreaming up stories.
