Adrian Mitchell (b. 1932) is a hugely prolific writer, the author of a great number of novels, plays and poems, for adults and, increasingly, for children - he writes that "more and more of my time is spent writing for children. This is partly because I have six grandchildren." He started his own literary career as a child, writing his first play at the age of ten, and went on to be Chairman of the University Poetry Society while studying at Oxford. He has also worked as a journalist - the first one to print an interview with the Beatles - and a screenwriter for film and TV, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
