Here's what you say about us...

Before turning to children's fiction, Joseph Lamb wrote historical dramas which were performed throughout Scotland. Much of his creative output is set in Scotland, with a focus on his home town of Dundee-where he lives with his wife and two children.

An actor with over 30 years' experience, Joseph frequently undertakes school visits and public events, based around his historical writing work-covering eras from the Vikings, to the Jacobites, and beyond.

Carnegie Medal winner Theresa Breslin described it as a "beautifully written, refreshingly direct and clear-meticulously researched" novel, set in "a rich and atmospheric world that is solid yet haunting."
Author, Helen Sedgwick, described it simply as "brilliant".
