Best Selling Childrens Author
Welcome to my website!
I'm Terry Deary, professional actor and writer for stage, television and movies. I was a children's author with 247 fiction and non-fiction books published in 36 years. My future writing will be for adult fiction and non-fiction readers, television and stage.
My best-known titles were "Horrible Histories" series and they are still popular thanks to a BBC television series based on the books. There were around 60 titles with total sales of 25 million in 40 countries.
I have written over 100 novels, as well as the non-fiction, and am one of Britain's best-selling authors of the 21st Century and seventh most-borrowed author in British libraries in 2012. My last novel "Put out the Light" won Sheffield Libraries fiction prize and is nominated for the Carnegie Medal in 2012.
