Lichfield Dean


Lichfield Dean hails from the English Midlands. He is not from Lichfield, although it isn't that far away.

A degree in astrophysics, a career in computer coding and being the drummer in several unsuccessful bands led him to the conclusion that the way forward was to start writing fiction. Science fiction, to be precise.

So after a seemingly endless amount of time, a light-hearted science fiction novel emerged called The Garden Wall. And no, despite some claims, it isn't the world's first sci-fi/gardening crossover book, although a garden does appear very briefly at one point.

When Prof. Hughes accidentally vaporised the University of Birmingham School of Materials Science, and couldn't be found afterwards, his students thought the only consequence would be the cancellation of his notoriously hard end-of-year exams. However, for Eradani, this is just the start of a fantastic science fiction caper that she doesn't really want to be a part of.
