About the author (2023)

Harry Edmanson grew up in the South West of England, where he explored the countryside and made up adventures with his brother. At the age of thirteen, Harry was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. It was a scary and confusing time, but he vowed that he would take control of the Diabetes instead of letting it control his life.
