D C Grant was born in Manchester, England but she didn’t stay there for long as the family moved to Lowestoft, Suffolk when she was four. She didn’t stay here for long either, moving to South Africa with her family when she was thirteen. This is where she found that she liked words to string words together and create a story out of thin air. Just when she thought her inter-continental moving days were over, she moved to New Zealand with husband and two daughters. Here she was first published by Scholastic NZ Ltd.
Since then she has proceeded to write and publish books, expanding into digital ebooks as the format became more popular. While her first few books are set in New Zealand, later books expand into other parts of the world, drawing on her experiences whilst living in other countries.
Her favorite authors are Lee Child and Bernard Cornwell and, while she reads diversely, she leans towards the mystery/thriller and historical fiction. So it is only right that she writes in these genres for children and young adults.
D C Grant lives in a New York loft style apartment in Auckland, New Zealand with a slightly psychotic cat called Candy and drinks lots of coffee to power her through the late night writing sessions – because she’s a night owl!

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and was impressed with the author's detailed research into the New Zealand Land Wars. Would definitely recommend this book.

This page-turning read cleverly interweaves historical fact (the New Zealand Land Wars) into a modern-day tale of a teenager facing the typical problems of adolescence, as well as the disability he is left with after a horrific car crash. A sensitively written novel that combines fast-paced action with a strong moral theme. Recommended reading for young adults, particularly boys.
