About the Author

Annemarie Allan studied at Stirling University and worked as a teacher and librarian near London. Returning to Scotland, she took up a post at the Scottish Arts Council, and started writing fantasy and science fiction for children in her spare time. She was shortlisted (for a different book) for the Saga/HarperCollins Children's book award in 2006. Hox is her first published novel.


'I have never read anything like this before. I could not put this book down because I found it amazing. Annemarie Allan is an amazing writer. In the future I will absolutely read more of her novels.' -- Nathalie Black, Queensferry High School, reporting for Teen Titles Magazine 'Hox is a breathlessly paced, action adventure, set, as all Kelpies Prize winning books have to be, in contemporary Scotland. An excellent debut novel by Annemarie Allan.' -- Books for Keeps, May 2008 'This is a superb, intelligent and gripping novel. The strange bond between a boy and an animal draws you in and you will be desperate to know what happens next.' -- John Baker, Waterstone's Guide to Children's Books 'Young readers will love this' -- Stuart Peterson, The Greenock Telegraph 'The impressive details creates an atmosphere that is unmistakeably Scottish ... a fast paced and intriguing adventure with a satisfying but simple plot and a pleasing, if predictable ending.' -- 'A satisfying resolution of mysteries and an easy-to-follow plot, suitable for animal lovers of 10 to 13.' -- Alison A. Maxwell-Cox, The School Librarian, Spring 2008 'Hox is science fiction, a mystery, an adventure, all rolled together through the world of genetic engineering.' -- Suse Coon, Lothian Life
