Children's Author

Welcome to my website. I'm Terry Deary ®, professional actor, singer and writer for stage, television, movies and radio.

To see me in action why not have a look at a sample of a TV idea called "Stranger than fiction" HERE 

I am also a children's author with 326 fiction and non-fiction books published in the past 42 years, selling over 33 million copies in 45 languages. 

My best-known children's book titles are the "Horrible Histories" series, first published 27 years ago and  still popular thanks to a BBC television series, theatre shows and a movie based on the books. There are around 100 "Horrible Histories" titles. Readers interested in the HH books can see how they came about HERE.

I have written 150 novels, as well as the non-fiction, If you have a question then I can be contacted by email at THIS PAGE .  (NOTE: No messages from schools please.) I try to answer ALL messages from genuine fans within a week of receiving them.

See me present some of his quirky television documentaries HERE and HERE as well as my "Great North Run Tales" HERE
