Anthony McGowan worked as a nightclub bouncer, civil servant and Open University tutor in Philosophy before becoming a writer. He published his first novel for teenagers, Hellbent, in 2005. It was described by The Times as a 'brilliantly nauseating thriller.' His other books for teenagers include Henry Tumour and The Knife that Killed Me, the latter of which was adapted into a film.
