Tom Nicoll's headshot

I am a writer of funny books for kids, including the There's a Dragon in my..., Boyband of the Apocalypse and Level Up! series. My tenth children's book will be published in 2019.

For events I can provide talks or workshops on all aspects of writing and can tailor the content if required, though with the nature of the books I write there would normally be large emphasis on humour. Sometimes, for perfectly valid book-related reasons, events may involve me placing a pair of pants on my head. I am not necessarily proud of this, but there it is. (Photo credit: Chris Scott)
