‘TIMERIDERS’ author Alex Scarrow has shared some of his writing secrets with Midhurst Rother College pupils.

Former rock guitarist Alex, who has also worked as a graphic designer in the computer games industry, enthralled his young audiences with his entertaining and animated presentation about his writing style, methods and how he created and developed his very intricate and imaginative storylines.

The presentations were followed by writing workshops and a book-signing session. Alex’s lively and engaging approach attracted excellent sales of his books and a flood of students eager to borrow copies of TimeRider from the library.

Ashley Morgan, Year 7 said: “He is lively and expressive, and he has a funny personality. I will read all of his books”

College librarian, Nikki Williams said: “Events such as this encourage a love of reading and books. It was wonderful to see the way our students engaged with Alex and asking so many interesting questions. I am sure many will read the TimeRiders series now, and will perhaps be inspired to write something themselves.”

The best-selling TimeRiders series has been sold in over 30 countries.
