About Gabrielle Kent

Gabrielle grew up in the 1980s, reading adventure stories, drawing castles and dragons, making her own comics, and playing games on her best friend’s Atari. 

Her first job was as a video-game artist before becoming a university lecturer and teaching thousands of students how to design videogames. 

She is now a full time author. Her first series, Alfie Bloom, is about a boy who inherits a castle and a whole load of magical problems. Her experience of childhood in the eighties came together with her love of videogames when she was asked to write a series based on the characters and world from the game, Knights and Bikes, soon to become an animated tv series. She is working on lots of new books, including a series with her husband, Satish. Rani Reports features a girl who wants to be an investigative journalist and her exciting adventures with her rambunctious Mauritian grandma!
