High-profile author who promotes his books very actively. Historical fiction is the hot new genre. Tudor equivalent of the Roman Mysteries. Lively boy and girl protagonists combined with famous figures from Tudor times bring history to life. "A galloping good tale that'll keep you completely enthralled." The Times. Tudor times are part of National Curriculum Key Stages 2 and 3. In a 2001 libraries' survey, Terry Deary was the most-borrowed author of children's non-fiction in Britain. Gorgeous new covers and an updated look for the six-book relaunch. No comparable series. (Doubleday's Lady Grace Mysteries, published in 2004, are very different - told from the point of view of a maid of honour in Elizabeth's court.)
Terry Deary was born in Sunderland in 1946 and now lives in County Durham, where the Marsden family of the Tudor Chronicles live. Once an actor and a teacher of English and drama, he is one of Britain's bestselling children's authors, with over 140 books to his credit, including the phenomenally successful Horrible Histories.
