Gervase Phinn

Gervase Phinn was born in Rotherham, North Yorkshire on December 27th 1946.
As a child he loved reading and his favourite book was The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde.

A teacher for fourteen years and then a school inspector, these days Gervase spends much of his time visiting schools, running courses for teachers and writing books for children and adults. He gets his ideas from books he has read and by keeping his eyes and ears open.

He lives in a large red-brick house with a greasy-grey slate roof and works in one of the bedrooms which has been converted into a study. It has wall-to-wall bookcases, crammed with books.

He has four children, Richard, Matthew, Dominic and Lizzie.
