D.D. Everest lives on the edge of Ashdown Forest, in East Sussex. When he is not writing fun stuff about magic, he is also a successful journalist and author of a number of nonfiction books.
To avoid procrastinating at his desk (at least not too often) he pursues his love of football – he used to manage a junior football team – and music, occasionally being roped in as a roadie for his son’s various rock bands. And he loves reading books too, of course.
He is a Visiting Professor at the prestigious Warwick Business School, an Associate Fellow of the Said Business School, Oxford University and Adjunct Professor of the IE Business School in Madrid.
D.D. Everest’s debut novel, Archie Greene and the Magician’s Secret, was shortlisted for the Best Children’s Book in the National Book Awards. This was followed by Archie Greene and the Alchemist’s Curse, and the trilogy was completed in 2017, with the release of Archie Greene and the Raven’s Spell.
