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 the writer of 341 books - fiction and non-fiction - published in the past 46 years, selling over 38+ million copies in 45 languages. My first murder-mystery for adults will be published in 2025 and non-fiction for adults in September 2024.

My best-known children's book titles are the "Horrible Histories" series, first published 30 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. From 2024 I'll be writing adult fiction and non-fiction books for a new audience.

I have written 160 children's 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.
