Jon Burrage grew up in a little village in the West Midlands and left it as soon as he could to study English Literature and Creative Writing at Lancaster University.

After finishing those studies, he completed a PGCE in Secondary English, Drama and Media Studies, and has spent much of the last 12 years working in a variety of secondary schools across the country.

He now splits his time between teaching in local schools and writing/painting the worlds and characters in his head.
