Ross Montgomery has worked as a pig farmer, a postman and a primary school teacher, so writing books was the next logical step. He spent his childhood reading everything he could get his hands on, from Jacqueline Wilson to Beano annuals, and it taught him pretty much everything that's worth knowing. He lives in London with his girlfriend, a cat called Fun Bobby, and a cactus on every available surface.
Author of Alex, the Dog and the Unopenable Door, The Tornado Chasers, Perijee & Me and Christmas Dinner of Souls, Ross has been shortlisted for the Costa Book Award and Branford Boase Award and nominated for the Carnegie Award. His first picture book The Building Boy with David Litchfield was published to critical acclaim and sold around the world.
