Patrick Makin

Patrick Makin's first job as a writer was as a war correspondent in Yemen, however, when he decided that being bombed and shot at really isn't all it's cracked up to be, he moved to Bristol and cut his teeth working as scripteditor for Aardman. From plasticine creatures to real life was quite a leap but he still likes to bring a lighter touch to everything he writes.

Patrick is the author of The Magic Carpet Guide to Earth’s Forbidden Places.
