Alex Scarrow: From screenwriter and games designer to author 

Be inspired by Alex Scarrow - the author of the international bestselling teen series TIMERIDERS, the plague series REMADE and a number of adult thrillers. Before being a published author, he spent ten years in the computer games industry as a game designer. Many of his books feature the concepts found in the high-end computer games he used to design. 

His newest series Remade launched in 2016 with a spin-off series ‘Plague Land’ following in 2018. TimeRiders was a RedHouse Awards, Catalyst Awards, Hampshire Book winner and a finalist for Galaxy Children's Book of the Year.

Alex will be talking about his varied career, how he got into writing novels, reading from TimeRiders and taking questions.

I'm now back at my desk after Ann Cleeves' mammoth book tour and wanted to send a note to say a huge thank you for hosting such a fantastic event for us. It was a definite highlight out of the 30 events!

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.

Kate Adie's Desert Island Books was thoroughly enjoyable! I had no idea she was (a) so glamorous and (b) so delightfully funny.
