About Me


My name is Damaris Young and I am the author of The Switching Hour and The Creature Keeper, which are both aimed at 9+ readers. I love writing edge-of-your-seat adventures that have an environmental message, with brave characters, strong friendships and extraordinary animals.

I studied on the Writing for Young People MA at Bath Spa University, where I wrote my debut novel, The Switching Hour. I spent my childhood in southern and central Africa before moving back to the UK as an adult.
