Gavin Milnthorpe is a commercial lawyer by day, and a writer of fictional nonsense by night. Second Hand Scott is his second novel. He has had some (small) success in writing for the stage. He can also be found trying his hand at stand-up comedy in and around East Anglia which, as his audiences will attest, is no laughing matter. He is married (punching above his weight) and is the father to two small (wonderful) children.
His other books include 'It’s the end of the World as we know it!' a handbook to the End Times, and 'Losing my Religion', a re-examination of the Kingdom of God, both published through Pneuma Springs.

What is the main message you want to convey to your readers in your books? Caramel may have a disability but she learns to capitalise on her unique abilities. I hope kids will identify with her struggles and be encouraged by her courage and determination. Q4. How did it compare to write the first book, “Escape From the Forbidden Planet” versus the second book, “Return to Cardamom” in the series? The characters and world building were already explained by book 2, so it felt easier to continue their journey. Q5. Can we expect more books from you in the future? Hmmm, book 3 in the trilogy has all the
