Gill Lewis's picture

Gill Lewis

Before she could walk, Gill Lewis was discovered force-feeding bread to a sick hedgehog under the rose bushes. Now her stories reflect her passion for wild animals in wild places. She draws inspiration from the many people and animals she has met during her work and travels as a vet, both at home and abroad.

Gill's first novel Sky Hawk was published to much critical acclaim. It won the UKLA Children's Book of the Year, Leeds Book Award, Heart of Hawick Book Award, Solihull Book Award, Warwickshire Children's Book Award, Newton Marasco Green Earth Book Award and was shortlisted for the prestigious Red House Children's Book Award, Waterstones Children's Book Prize and the Brandford Boase Award.
