Dan Scott was born in Surrey, England. Growing up, he became interested in Ancient Rome and combined with his hobby of reading historical fiction, he had plenty of inspiration for the adventure stories he first began to write as a child. Eventually, his characters and stories developed into the action-packed Gladiator School series. When he's not writing, Dan enjoys rock climbing, visiting museums and collecting vintage guitars. He also spends too much time wishing he was a gladiator and play-fighting with his pet cat, Noxii.
