About

Hello – I write and illustrate children’s fiction and non-fiction. My Bee Boy trilogy  — Clash of the Killer Queens, Attack of the Zombees and Curse of the Vampire Mites is now complete. All published titles can be found on my book page.

My background is in design and typography which plays an important part in my work as I enjoy having control over text,  illustrations and page design right the way through to final layouts.

The best-selling multi award-winning Horrible Science series has kept me busy for many years. Our most recent award is The Blue Peter Prize For Best Book With Facts. We’ve sold millions of Horrible Science books all around the world. Horrible Science spin-offs include a highly successful range of experiment kits from Galt Toys, a theatre show from the Birmingham Stage Company and a children’s television series on ITV.

I’ve visited many of the big book festivals where I draw with the audience, do book readings and play my guitar – it’s great to escape the studio every now and then! Life is strange – I used to be told off at school for doodling and now I get paid for it.
