Giles was born in East Sussex in 1977 and grew up on the south coast. He neglected his education to pursue a career in music. He spent a number of years performing extensively around the UK, including slots at the Glastonbury festival.

His book 'THE FEARSOME BEASTIE' (Maverick Arts Publishing) won The People's Book Prize 2012, Bizziebaby Gold Award and Highly Commended in The Forward National Literature Award in the US. It has also been Shortlisted for The Rotherham Children's Awards and The Heart Of Hawick Children's Book Award 2013. His third Book 'TAMARA SMALL AND THE MONSTERS' BALL' is nominated for The People's Book Prize 2013.

A collection of nonsense poetry 'THERE IS A LION IN MY BATHROOM' came out in 2010, with proceeds going to Leukaemia Research.

Giles still lives in Seaford, East Sussex with his wife, Michelle, and their two sons, Elijah and Sonny.
