Hugh Brown

Hugh_Brown_01_1.JPG

After completing an honours degree in English Literature, Hugh Brown decided he would like to write books that people would enjoy reading. A few years later, after reading lots of Margaret Mahy stories to his daughter, he started writing for younger readers. Hugh lives on the Kapiti Coast with his children. He is an editor too much of the time and a writer not enough of the time. The rest of the time he’s busy being a dad, cooking, gardening or playing his ukulele.
