About Polly Ho-Yen

Polly Ho-Yen is a writer based in Bristol. Her debut novel ‘Boy in the Tower’ was shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Award, Waterstones Children’s Book Prize and the Federation of Children’s Book Groups Book Award.  All three of her middle-grade novels published by Penguin Random House have been nominated for the Carnegie Medal.
Following her experiences working as a primary school teacher in South London, Polly put these places and communities centre stage in her narratives. She aims to create stories firmly rooted in a world that young people will know and recognise, even when a science fiction or fantastical element creeps in.
Polly is an Arvon tutor and regularly runs writing workshops in primary and secondary schools across the country.
