Michelle Paver (born 1960) is a British-based novelist and children's writer, author of the six-book series Chronicles of Ancient Darkness set in the pre-agricultural Stone Age.

Biography

Michelle Paver was born in Malawimarker in central Africa. Her mother was Belgianmarker and her South African father ran a modest newspaper, the Nyasaland Times. Her family settled in the United Kingdommarker when she was three, and lived in Wimbledonmarker and was educated at Lady Margaret Hallmarker. After reading biochemistry at the University of Oxfordmarker, where she attained a first-class degree, she became a partner in a City law firm. Her father's death in 1996 prompted her to take a one-year sabbatical, during which she travelled around France and America, and wrote her first book, Without Charity. She resigned from legal practice soon after her return, to concentrate on writing.

The first of her children's series of books, Chronicles of Ancient Darkness, Wolf Brother was published in 2004 and as a whole the books have sold over 1 million copies in the UK. Paver was paid a reported £2.8 million advance for the first book.
