Rob Starling began doodling creatures and characters at school and hasn't stopped since. He lives and works in Wiltshire, and when he's not sketching up new characters or writing down stories he can be found sculpting, brewing coffee, adjusting his headphones or foraging in the kitchen for cake. Fergal is Fuming, which was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Award, was his first book.
