Kent Silverhill was born in 1960 in Bristol, UK and emigrated to South Africa when he was seven. The remainder of his childhood was spent growing up in and around Johannesburg. He returned to the UK in 1985 and worked as a manufacturing engineer for a few years before moving into IT. He is also a cartoonist and the author of the Hollow series of which the first two books are currently available. The third book in the series is being worked on and is due out this year.

In his spare time, Kent enjoys walking and reading (though not at the same time). He is also the owner of two cats although they do not share his view of who is in charge.
