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 335 fiction and non-fiction books published in the past 45 years, selling over 36+ million copies in 45 languages. 

My best-known children's book titles are the "Horrible Histories" series, first published 29 years ago and  still popular thanks to a CBBC 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 160 novels, as well as the non-fiction, If you have a question then I can be contacted by email at THIS PAGE . I try to answer ALL messages from genuine fans within a week of receiving them.

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

Enjoy the site, it's good to see you.
