JUSTIN Som­per is the award-win­ning au­thor of eight novels for young peo­ple, all with a fo­cus on high-oc­tane fan­tasy ad­ven­ture, driven by strong char­ac­ters. Justin’s Vam­pi­rates series has re­cently been re­launched with new art and bonus writ­ten con­tent. The first ti­tle in the se­quence is De­mons of the Ocean. Justin told us what his favourite book is:

“It’s a tie be­tween The Great Gatsby and Tim Win­ton’s Cloud­street. They are both books I re­turn to again and again. I’ve been lucky enough to meet Tim Win­ton and have him sign my trea­sured copy. If I could be a char­ac­ter in an adult novel, it would be Nick Car­raway, nar­ra­tor of Gatsby.
