Born in Malawi to a Belgian mother and a father who ran the tiny NYASALAND TIMES, Michelle Paver moved to the UK when she was three. She was brought up in Wimbledon and, following a biochemistry degree from Oxford, she became a partner in a big City law firm. She gave up the City to follow her long-held dream of becoming a writer. Successfully published as an adult author, the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness are her first brilliant books for children.
