Thomas Taylor was marooned on this planet in 1973, on a small island called Britain. After an initial period of exploration he found refuge at an Art School, and began pursuing a career in writing and illustrating children’s books. His first attempt to get noticed was by doing the cover art for the British edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Subsequent to this he wrote and illustrated a series of (sometimes award-winning) picture books for younger children, which include The Loudest Roar books about a Tiger called Clovis. He has also written and illustrated a trio of novellas about a teenage boy who can see ghosts, and who teams up with one to solve supernatural crimes — the Dan and the Dead series. His YA novel, Haunters, is about people who can travel in time through their dreams, appearing in the past as ghosts. Thomas has long had an ambition to make a comic book, and is delighted to have teamed up with author Marcus Sedgwick to create Scarlett Hart. Although he still looks to the stars for rescue, Thomas has lots to do in the meantime, including another comic book with Walker Books.
