Jonathan Meres is the author of the best-selling WORLD OF NORM series, the first of which was nominated for The Scottish Children’s Book Awards in 2012.
Born in Nottingham, he left school at 16 to join the merchant navy. Ever in search of adventure, he then became an ice cream van driver before moving to London to be a rock star. When that didn’t work out Jonathan became an actor instead and later, a stand-up comedian. He won a Time Out Award for comedy and was nominated for The Perrier Award. He has written a wide variety of TV programmes for children, as well as radio for grown-ups, including his own series on Radio 4.
He lives in Edinburgh where he enjoys being cynical. He has no cats.
