Welcome to Dan Smith

We are thrilled to announce that Ella has signed Dan Smith! Dan has had five adult crime thrillers published by Orion, and four action/adventure novels for teens published by Chicken House, with two more to come. Dan’s debut novel for younger readers, My Friend The Enemy, was long listed for the Branford Boase Award 2014, and short-listed for the Historical Association Young Quills 2013. His 2015 novel Big Game is based on a major movie starring Samuel L Jackson. Dan’s debut novel for adults, Dry Season, was shortlisted for the Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award 2011.

Dan’s writing is atmospheric, imaginative, and gripping, and we couldn’t be more excited to work with him – welcome to DKW, Dan!
