This article has been distinguished as part of the real world and thus should not be taken as part of the fictional universe of the Deptford Mice books.

Robin Jarvis (born 8 May, 1963 in Liverpool) is an English author and illustrator. He is the youngest of four children, and grew up in Warrington, attending Penketh High School. His favourite subjects at school were Art and English and he went on to study Graphic Design at Newcastle Polytechnic (now Northumbria University). After college, he moved to London and worked in the television and advertising industries as a model-maker. When he started sketching some mouse characters, a friend suggested that he submit the drawings to a publisher. As a result, Jarvis began writing The Deptford Mice Trilogy. His first book, The Dark Portal, was a runner-up for the Smarties Book Prize in 1989.

Jarvis is also the author of The Whitby Witches, The Wyrd Museum, The Hagwood Trilogy, Deathscent, Dancing Jax, and The Witching Legacy. He lives in Greenwich, South London.
