Tom Nicoll is an award-winning writer of funny books for children, including the There's a Dragon in my... series and Boyband of the Apocalypse, which won the Stockton Children's Book of the Year 2019. He is also an avid, though arguably not-very-good, gamer and has written a video-game based series for younger readers called Level Up!
Oh yes, he very much is.
He lives just outside Edinburgh with his wife and two daughters. He also likes playing videogames badly.
Thanks. Anything else you want to know?
A little bit yes.
Good idea. Bye.
Here are all the books I've written. If you like the look of them and think to yourself, you know what, I'm going to buy this, then I've included links on each of them for you to do just that. Of course I'm certainly not going to say where you should buy them from, but what I would say is that if you were to buy them from the bookshop.org link then not only do I get 10% of the purchase, but bookshop.org will also give another 10% to support independent bookshops. Which sounds good to me. But you don't have to tell me about the importance of convenience - OH NO YOU DO NOT - so I've also included links to Amazon and Waterstones too.
Do you draw the pictures in your books is a question I'm asked all the time when I'm visiting schools. "Yes," I tell them. "And I edit them myself and print all the pages out and glue them together." Sometimes though, I tell them the truth about the awesome illustrators who have helped bring all my books to life. But only sometimes. It's their own fault for being so talented.
If you'd like to be kept up-to-date with book related news about me then you can pop your email into the box below and maybe I might send you an email from time to time. Eh, we'll see how it goes. I certainly won't spam you or do anything untoward with your data. Of course by even saying that it automatically looks a bit suss doesn't it? You probably weren't for a second thinking I was going to do anything bad like that but now, to be perfectly honest, you'd be a fool not to be wondering why I even brought it up. Or why I keep going on about it. I really am making the whole situation even worse aren't I? "What is he upto?", you're probably thinking now. This has gone horribly wrong. I'll just go now. Bye.
