Alistair McNaught has always loved the way words evoke worlds and feelings, letting him live multiple lives in one short burst. His quest for staying young at heart has been helped by years of teaching geography; having five children, two grandchildren and volunteering with young people.
Alistair had previously published non-fiction but wanted more fun so he completed an MA in Writing for Children at the University of Winchester. He learned to embrace imaginary friends and characters who wander uninvited through the mind. But he avoids speaking to them in public…
Despite working full time with educational technology Alistair likes the simple things in life. He is a wild-camper, loves having fun with music and being outdoors, whether climbing trees, walking the dog or kayaking on the Solent. He is blessed with a patient and understanding wife and a dog who tolerates walks that get punctuated by long periods sitting under trees or staring at stars.
