About the Author

Matt Killeen was born in Birmingham, in the UK, back in the war-mad seventies--a hometown largely demolished and rebuilt in his lengthy absence. People tend to dismiss what comes more easily to them as unworthy, so it took him far too long to realize he was a writer. He worked as an advertising copywriter and largely ignored music and sports journalist in the noughties, before fulfilling a childhood dream to join the LEGO(R) Group in 2010. He left after eight years, and an unconscionable amount of money spent in the staff store, to become a full-time author. A lover of costume parties, he is an avid gamer, soccer fan, toddler wrangler and warrior for truth and social justice. Although a devout urbanite, he has somehow ended up surrounded by fields in a house full of LEGO(R) bricks and musical instruments, with his two diversely aged children, Nuyorican soul mate and neurotic fluffy dog. Orphan Monster Spy was his debut novel and he has still not learned to touch-type.

Reviews

"A stunning, smart, grounded tale of intrigue in Nazi Germany, so guilty and detailed it feels like true memory rather than fiction. Sarah is an angry, appealing, heart-wrenching hero, superhuman and achingly frail in equal measure. I wish I'd written this myself. Deeply disturbing and chillingly good."--Elizabeth Wein, New York Times bestselling author of Code Name Verity

"I found myself mesmerized by Sarah's journey into a world of human monsters. Orphan Monster Spy weaves one heroine's courage through a spectrum of darkness, and the effects resonate long after the final page." --Ryan Graudin, award-winning author of the Wolf By Wolf duology

"Killeen expertly conjures the day-to-day evil of Nazi Germany in this terrific page turner."--Paul Dowswell, award-winning author of The Auslander

"A powerful, bleak, and penetrating portrait of an isolated young woman excelling in unimaginable danger."--Kirkus Reviews
