About Gill Lewis
Gill Lewis spent much of her childhood in the garden where she ran a small zoo and a veterinary hospital for creepy-crawlies, mice, and birds. When she grew up she became a real vet and travelled from the Arctic to Africa in search of interesting animals and places. She worked in Cornwall for several years and spent many hours of her spare time in the cold Atlantic, learning how to fall off a surf board. Gill now writes books for children. Her debut novel, Sky Hawk was published to much critical acclaim and has been translated into twenty languages. The publishers of Sky Hawk generously sponsored a satellite-tagged osprey through the Highland Foundation for Wildlife, fulfilling Gill's dream that her writing could contribute directly to wildlife conservation. She lives in the depths of Somerset with her husband and three children and writes from a tree house in the company of squirrels.
