About the Author
Alex Scarrow lives a nomadic existence with his wife Frances and his son Jacob, their current home being Norwich. He spent the first ten years out of college in the music business chasing record deals and the next 12 years in the computer games industry.
Alex Scarrow spent the first ten years out of college in various rock bands trying to get a record deal. Then, failing miserably at that he went into the computer games business as a digital artist.
After a decade in the games business, he ended up as a senior designer working on high-concept projects for next generation consoles.
Finally he got bored of all of that and turned his hand to writing. His first manuscript, A THOUSAND SUNS was published in the UK by Orion in 2005. He now has a number of thrillers out and written the nine-book teen series TIMERIDERS which has won a number of awards, been nominated by Puffin as BEST ADVENTURE FANTASY in their recent BEST SEVENTY CHILDRENS BOOKS OF ALL TIME press release.
And coming soon, released exclusively on Amazon Kindle, is the ELLIE QUIN SERIES, which Alex describes as a chase story across a future universe that looks a bit like 'BladeRunner meets Douglas Adam's Hitch-Hikers Guide'. He has also described it as 'Bridget Jones in Space'.
Which is intriguing.
Alex Scarrow is fast building a reputation as one of the UK's most original writers.
"Alex is plugged into the zeitgeist - his themes of religious chaos, environmental catastrophe and the dangers of unchecked power are perfectly in tune with the times." - Orion Books.
Alex is represented by Veronique Baxter at David Higham Associates
