He was born in Manchester and attended Emmanuel College, Cambridge and Manchester University. After completing two master's degrees (in Classics and Philosophy), he taught English in Istanbul for a year. After returning to the UK, he taught English as a foreign language for several years, and it was around this time that he published his first book, Zargon Zoo (1991). Four years later, he published Bug Muldoon and the Garden of Fear, and relocated with his family to Wisconsin, United States where he works as a freelance writer and editor. He also writes books for younger readers under the pen name Paul Cooper. He, his wife and two daughters, now divide their time between Cambridge, England and Madison, Wisconsin.
