I’m Ross. I write stories. Some people read them. It’s the best job in the world.
My first book, Zac and the Dream Pirates (Chicken House, 2010), won the Scottish Children’s Book Award.
My second book, The Nowhere Emporium (Kelpies, 2015), won the Blue Peter Book Award, Scottish Children’s Book Award, and the North East Book Award.
Shadowsmith, my third novel for children, comes out in September 2016. I do not have a time machine, so I cannot tell you how this one will do, although I hope it takes after its brothers.
I also hope that there will be many more books.
I regularly visit schools and festivals, where I ramble about writing and run creative workshops for children. If you are interested, you can get in touch by going to the “Contact” page at the top of the site.
