ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Gin Phillips was raised in Alabama, where she “had a lot of time outdoors, entertaining myself”, and now lives with her son, husband and pet schnoodle. Gin worked in magazines but preferred writing fiction, publishing her debut The Well and the Mine to acclaim in 2007. “I liked the scope of a novel, following wherever it took me,” she says. Fierce Kingdom, her fifth book, was inspired by days spent at the zoo with her son.
