Loris Owen grew up reading Roald Dahl, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and Lewis Carroll. There’s nothing she enjoys more than adventure stories about other worlds, and she can be found wandering inside the books of authors like Neil Gaiman and Philip Pullman. Animals and nature have always been a creative force in her writing and that, in turn, led to a fascination with the nature of everything!
Loris lives in Kent with her partner, a London fire fighter. She has two stepsons who love the outdoors, and a young nephew who loves racing car dinosaurs.
Her brilliant publishing debut is The Ten Riddles of Eartha Quicksmith (Firefly Press), a thrilling middle grade fantasy.
