Subject: Children's author Mal Peet dies aged 67

Written By: Philip Eno on 03/04/15 at 2:53 am

Award-winning children's author Mal Peet has died aged 67.

The writer, who won the Carnegie Medal in 2006 for his historical novel Tamar, died on Monday night, several months after being diagnosed with cancer.

Norfolk-born Peet was a teacher before turning to writing in the face of what he called "his old enemy, boredom".

Peet, who lived in Exmouth, wrote novels for teenagers and adults and a series of children's books co-authored with his wife Elspeth Graham.
