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.

This Year's Events

Feedback

Very well organised, excellent variety in terms of author and presentation. Favourite was Tony Robinson, but I also really enjoyed Julia Shaw (memory very thought provoking), Richard Dannatt (good solid start to festival) JOHN Wright (local and good humour) Alison Weir (such research and knowledge) and Victoria Hislop (novel in a different style).

It is really great to have a Literary Festival in Dorchester and I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into making it happen.

I did so enjoy being with you and doing my stuff. I hope to see you again, though I am so busy I don't seem to have time for writing much at present! I am
sure your festival will go from strength to strength….

I very much enjoyed giving my talk and meeting you and all your colleagues. I can think of no way you could have been more accommodating.

I attended 4 events, next year I will want to attend even more talks. 
A friend came to stay with us and she was equally impressed by the talks she attended.
