Richard Scrimger has written adult novels, opinion pieces, and screenplays, but is best known for his quirky books for children. He’s won a couple of awards, been shortlisted for lots more, and given writing workshops around the world. His latest novels feature an occasionally irresistible superhero, a sad racist, and the back end of Laura Secord’s cow. Richard may be hyperactively confused, or he may be practicing the zen of ‘don’t know mind,’ which encourages curiosity and surprise. All four of his children are now older than he is.
Visit his website to find out more about him. His worldview isn’t very exciting (authoritarians bad, inclusion good, creativity important, puppies cute) and he doesn’t take pictures, so there’s no point in following him on social media.
