Biography:

David Almond grew up in a large family in northeastern England and says, "The place and the people have given me many of my stories." He worked as a postman, a brush salesman, an editor and a teacher but began to write seriously after he finished college. His first novel for children, Skellig, was a Michael L. Printz Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book and appeared on many best book of the year lists. His second novel, Kit's Wilderness, won the Michael L. Printz Award for excellence in literature for young adults. David Almond lives in England with his partner and their daughter.
