Melvin Burgess was born in Twickenham and after daydreaming his way through school, ended up at the local newspaper on a training course to be a journalist. Even though the job wasn't for him, it awoke a love of writing and cemented in Melvin's mind that that was the career he wanted. He has since written over 20 titles for children and young adults, never shying away from gritty topics, and has been awarded numerous prizes for his work. In 1996 his controversial Junk won the Carnegie Medal.
