About Chris d’Lacey 

His series The Last Dragon Chronicles have sold nearly four million copies worldwide, and he writes books for children of all ages. He likes dragons. His latest series, Erth Dragons, begins with The Wearle, book one. That is indeed VERY dragony. Fans of the supernatural might enjoy his UNICORNE Files series, a kind of ‘X-Files’ for kids. The first book is titled A Dark Inheritance.

Chris’s early ambition was to be a songwriter, and he began writing fiction in his early thirties. He began with a gentle story about Christmas that grew to a 250,000-word saga of polar bears. He still has to take it out of his ‘bottom drawer’. Eventually, he started writing bizarre short stories that were published in various small press magazines. When a friend suggested that he enter a competition to write a tale for nine-year-olds, he had no plans to try writing children’s fiction. His story didn’t win the contest, but a publisher picked it up off a slush pile. He has now devoted himself exclusively to children’s fiction and has published some thirty books, many of which have been translated. His first children’s novel, ‘Fly, Cherokee, Fly,’ was highly commended for the Carnegie Medal.

The University of Leicester (where he worked for twenty-eight years as a scientist of sorts) awarded him an honorary doctorate in July 2002 for his contributions to children’s fiction. As a full-time writer, he regularly visits schools, libraries, and book festivals. Living in Devon, England, he enjoys staring at the sea and playing the ukulele. As well as writing middle grade fiction, he has also written young adult fiction under the pseudonym ‘Vincent Caldey’. It is very difficult to find his one book under that name, ‘A Good Clean Edge’. There is no mention of dragons in its pages.

“There is a sign in the heavens
Another light in the darkness
A better time is beginning
There is a fire star coming

I see the mark of the ice bear
In the tears of the dragon
And you’d better start wishing
There is a fire star coming

Stay with me, my love……

….Until the stars have blinked their last
Wherever on this earth you walk
He will arouse, excite, inspire,
My Valentine, my one dark fire…….

― Chris D’Lacey, Fire Star
