R. McGeddon

R. McGeddon is absolutely sure the world is almost certainly going to probably end very soon. His middle grade series, The Disaster Diaries, details the many ways this could happen, including a zombie apocalypse, an alien invasion, and a mad scientist. A strange, reclusive fellow – so reclusive in fact, that no one has ever seen him, not even his mom – he plots his stories using letters cut from old newspapers and types them up on an encrypted typewriter. It’s also believed that he goes by other names, including A. Pocalypse and N. Dov Days, but since no one’s ever met him in real life, it’s hard to say for sure. One thing we know is that when the zombie apocalypse comes, he’ll be ready!

Jamie Littler is the suspiciously happy, award-winning illustrator of The Disaster Diaries series, written by R. McGeddon. He hails from the mysterious, mythical southern lands of England. It is said that the only form of nourishment he needs is to draw, which he does on a constant basis. This could explain why his hair grows so fast. When he is not drawing, which is a rare thing indeed, he spends time trying to find the drawing pen he just lost. He is down to his last one.
