Rob Lloyd Jones never wanted to be a writer when he grew up - he wanted to be Indiana Jones - so he studied Egyptology and archaeology and went on trips to faraway places. But all he found were interesting stories, so he decided to write them down. Rob is the author of highly acclaimed titles Wild Boy and Wild Boy and the Black Terror, as well as three previous Jake Atlas titles. He has written more than thirty other books for children, including non-fiction and adaptations of such classics as Jekyll and Hyde. Rob lives in East Sussex with his wife and two young sons.
