Sean Taylor

Sean’s writing career began in 1994 – with Scholastic! – when he won the second prize in the Independent’s new writers’ competition, and his story was published in our anthology, ‘Story of the Year’. Since then, Sean has had numerous publications to his name (OUP, Frances Lincoln, Collins…), but it is in the last couple of years that he has been developing into a rising picture book star. Sean teaches English and creative writing to teenagers.
