Meg Rosoff was born in 1956 in Boston, USA. She studied at Harvard University and left for England in 1977 to enter St Martin’s School of Art, later returning to finish her degree at Harvard. She worked in New York City for 10 years in publishing and advertising, before moving to England.

She has written four novels for teenagers, as well as several picture books. Her first novel, How I Live Now, was published to great acclaim in 2004, winning the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, and shortlisted for both the Whibread Children’s Book Award and the Orange First Novel Prize.
