Lissa Evans's route to children's fiction author is perhaps as roundabout as Stuart's adventures in Beeton. After a brief career as a doctor of medicine and then in stand-up comedy, Lissa became a comedy producer, first in radio and then in television, before turning to writing. Her first middle grade novel featuring young Stuart, Horten's Miraculous Mechanisms, was short-listed for the Carnegie Medal, the Costa Book Awards, and UK Literacy Association's Children's Book Award. It was also long-listed for the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize and the Branford Boase Award. Lissa lives with her family in North London.]]
