Sam Llewellyn is the author of many wonderful children's books, including the Little Darlings series. He also works as a journalist for British and American newspapers such as the London Times and Daily Telegraph.
He worked as an editor and fine art dealer until he decided that life was too short. Since then, his novels, published in twelve languages, have earned him a reputation as one of the world's master storytellers and writers of maritime thrillers. Many of his books are founded in personal experience. While researching them he has (among other things) chased pirates in the South China Sea and raced large ships in France.
He lives with his wife and their two sons in a medieval house in the Welsh border country. For more information about him, please visit http://www.samllewellyn.com/
