Justyn Edwards graduated from Southampton University with a degree in archaeology. Since then he has worked as a caravan park attendant, a paperboy and a software engineer, but never as an archaeologist. He has always wanted to be a writer, and his inspiration for The Great Fox series came from watching magic shows. He realized that what elevates the trick a magician performs is the story they tell their audience. And in turn, stories themselves are a kind of magic trick with the author choosing when to reveal their secrets to the reader.
