About the Author
Rab Ferguson is a children's writer from the North of England. He claims he's never actually seen an alien, but we can't be sure that's true.
The Late Crew is his second book. His first book, Landfill Mountains, is about the enviroment and storytelling, and is for teenagers.
He thinks that everyone reading this should try writing a story too - about whatever excites them! Whether that be aliens, or dragons, or railway lines, or pots and pans.
He lives with his wife Ashton, and his cat Hugo, both of whom are wonderfully ridiculous. He's thinking of putting Hugo in the next Late Crew book, so look out for the black and white cat in the sequel!
