Abi Elphinstone grew up in Scotland where she spent most of her childhood building dens, hiding in tree houses and running wild across highland glens. After being coaxed out of her tree house, she studied English at Bristol University and then worked as a teacher in Africa, Berkshire and London.
The Dreamsnatcher was her debut novel for 8-12 years. The Shadow Keeper is her second book and a third book, The Night Spinner, will complete the trilogy in February 2017.
When she’s not writing, Elphinstone volunteers for Beanstalk, visits schools to talk about her books and travels the world looking for her next story.
