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!

William and I had a very interesting and often hilarious time putting (our presentation) together – fortunately we both wanted to be thoroughly prepared, so we refined and refined… we enjoyed ourselves, aided and abetted by the helpfulness of you and yours behind the scenes, the warmth of the audience, and the pleasantness of the setting. Speaking at your festival was an altogether happy experience. I only wish I had managed to organise listening to many of the other talks, which I really wanted to do… Many congratulations to you and all your team, and all wishes for Festival no. 3!
