Two of our bestselling writers of adventure novels for young adults, Robert Muchamore and Sophie McKenzie, talk about their writing. Muchamore introduces his new novel, Rock War, and McKenzie discusses, Split Second, her action-packed new thriller. Both authors create plots full of excitement, intrigue and adventure and here is your chance to find out how it is done.

Muchamore is best known for writing CHERUB and the Henderson’s Boys novels. He has published 13 CHERUB (Charles Henderson’s espionage research unit B) novels) and they have sold over five million copies in more than 20 different countries.

McKenzie’s debut novel, Girl Missing, won the Richard and Judy Best Kids’ Books (12+ category), The Red House Book Award and The Manchester Children’s Book Award. Her thriller, Blood Ties, won the Red House Book Award and was longlisted for the Carnegie Medal. Among her most recent works is the Medusa Project series about four teenagers impregnated with the Medusa gene which gives them psychic abilities.

This event is chaired by Geraldine Brennan, a journalist specialising in children’s books and education who regularly reviews for the Observer and has judged several literary awards.
