Growing up, Dan Smith led three lives. In one he survived the day-to-day humdrum of boarding school, while in another he travelled the world, finding adventure in the padi-fields of South East Asia and the jungles of Brazil. But the third life he lived in a world of his own, making up stories . . . which is where some people say he still lives most of the time!
Now settled in Newcastle with his wife and two children, Dan writes stories to share with both adults and children.
Dan’s debut novel for younger readers, My Friend The Enemy, was long listed for the Branford Boase Award 2014, and his 2015 novel Big Game is based on a major movie starring Samuel L Jackson. His debut novel for adults, Dry Season, was shortlisted for the Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award 2011.
Dan will be doing sessions in schools in South Tyneside and he will be running a creative writing workshop at Gala Day for ages 11+.
