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

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

Thank YOU for hosting us so brilliantly on Sunday. Dad and I had a great time and were both really impressed by the very smooth running of your festival. It was a total pleasure being there with you, Helen, and the team. Congrats to all concerned on a job well done. It was fun to be a part of it.

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.

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 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….
