Cliff McNish

Cliff McNish, author

Cliff McNish was described by the The Times in 2010 as ‘one of our most talented thriller writers.’ He is the author of several prize-winning books for children and young adults, and his novels have sold in over twenty languages around the world.

His latest, GOING HOME (April 2014), is a change in direction from his usual fantasy and supernatural stories. Aimed at 9-12 year olds, it is a heartfelt comedy about four dogs stuck in a rescue centre.

Cliff speaks at conferences, schools, and book festivals. He lives in London, but says he would probably move to somewhere warmer and friendlier if he could be bothered with the sheer hassle of it.
