The Author

Alex pic July 2012  

Alex Scarrow used to be a rock guitarist, then he became a graphic artist, then he decided to be a computer-games designer. Finally, he grew up and became an author. He has written a number of successful thrillers and several screenplays, but it’s Young Adult fiction that has allowed him to really have fun with many of the really cool ideas and concepts he was playing around with when designing games.

He lives in Norwich with his family.

You can follow Alex on Twitter @AlexScarrow or on Facebook

He is represented by Veronique Baxter at David Higham Literary Agency

Below are some images from Alex’s days as a computer designer. Most of it is early concept artwork and mockups for games that never got made.
