Jeremy Strong

Born in Eltham on 18 November, 1949, Jeremy Strong worked in a wide range of roles - caretaker, headteacher, jam doughnut stuffer - before becoming a funny children’s author. Inspired by reading the Beano when he was 16 years old (he wasn’t allowed to read comics before then), his books are famous for their tongue-in-cheek and surreal sense of humour.

Jeremy won the Children’s Book Award in 1997 for The Hundred-Mile-an-Hour Dog and was actually current Dennis the Menace author Steven Butler’s headmaster; Steven actually credits Jeremy with developing his love of books.

His mother says that this damaged him for the rest of his life and refuses to take any responsibility. He loves writing stories because he says it is 'the only time you alone have complete control and can make anything happen'. His ambition is to make you laugh (or at least snuffle). Jeremy Strong lives near Bath with his wife, Gillie, four cats and a flying cow.
