About

J H B Smith is a writer of fantasy and sci-fi fiction novels for any ages willing to read them.

Between working as a software developer and dealing with the whims of capricious, sporadically violent tiny monsters (i.e. cats), he has written more books than he strictly should have and is continually working on more – there are always more stories on the Infinite Sea.

His children’s fantasy Scaled was a Runner Up for the Bloomsbury/National Literacy Trust New Children’s Author Prize 2015.

His children’s fantasy Frostfire was Shortlisted for the Times/Chicken House Children’s Fiction Competition 2016 and will be published by Chicken House in 2018.

He is represented by The Blair Partnership literary agency.
