Tom BeckerBiography

Since Tom Becker learned to hold a pen, he wanted to become a writer. In fact, when he was 5 years old, he wrote in a notebook that it was his dream was to be an author. His early enthusiasm for books and reading was encouraged by his parents who were voracious readers. Their family home was cluttered with bookcases and piles of novels. Tom spent most of his childhood curled up in an armchair reading fantasy novels by Brian Jacques, and later graduated to grown-up novels by David Eddings and Guy Gavriel Kay.

Aged 25, Tom realised that dream of being an author with publication of his first novelDarkside, which went on to win the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize. Since then, he has written four more books for the Darkside series and two standalones, The Traitors and While the Others Sleep.
