Christian Darkin gets asked to do impossible things most days - Whether it's bringing dinosaurs back to life, or building alien spaceships, or just looking after two of the world's most surprising children. Sometimes, on a really good day, when all the impossible things have been done, and there's a little time left, he writes.
He is the author of best selling "Act Normal" chapter books for children, and for older readers, his credits include two young adult novels, "The Skull" (published by Bloomsbury) and a detective technothriller, "@thelogician". He has also written six non-fiction books, two science documentaries, a Doctor Who spinoff film starring the sixth Doctor, and articles for dozens of magazines and most of the national newspapers.
His illustration work can be found in hundreds of children's books but also in grown-up titles such as The scientific journal, Nature. He also works as an animator, creating an entire series for BBC Cbeebies as well as special effects for film and TV.
