Paul Magrs


UK flag (b.1969)

Paul Magrs was born in Jarrow, Tyne and Wear in 1969. He was educated in Newton Aycliffe at Woodham Burn Infants and Junior Schools, then Woodham Comprehensive, in Newton Aycliffe, before attending Lancaster University. 'Strange Boy' is his twelfth published book, although it's the first time he's written for a younger audience. He's always wanted to write the kinds of book he could never find when he was a teenager.

Paul Magrs recommends

Black Dog (2014)
(Black Dog, book 1)
Rachel Neumeier
"Neumeier's writing is beautiful."
thumb
The Leaping (2010)
Tom Fletcher
"A book that's stiff with foreboding and dread right from the start. . . . It's a literary, literate horror novel--and has a mordant, knowing, blackly ironic style to it. But it's relentless, too, in its avowed intention of scaring the life out of its readers, with everything it can throw at us."
