Agent : Julia Churchill
Stephen Davies went to school in Plymouth and university in Durham. After that he taught English in Siberia (brrr) and the Solomon Islands (yum).
In 2001 Stephen felt the need to move to Gorom-Gorom in the north of Burkina Faso and he still works as a missionary in that area. He has been involved with various projects (famine relief, radio programming, rice growing) but his main work is with local churches.
Stephen writes the Sophie series for Andersen Press, YA thrillers and picture books.
In his yard he has a baobab tree and a giant ill-tempered tortoise called Maxwell.
