Kerry Wilkinson was one of two things as a child. If you ask him, he was a well-meaning, slightly hyperactive young man with an active imagination. If you ask his mother and/or teachers, he was a bit of a pain in the bum.
Kerry grew up playing ropey-looking computer games that you needed a keyboard for, being rubbish at football, and reading science fiction and fantasy novels.
The Silver Blackthorn trilogy is Kerry's first fantasy work. His other series, the Jessica Daniel crime books, are also published by Pan Macmillan.
He is also definitely not a pain in the bum.
