Hello.  This is the bit where I should probably tell you how I was born in a skip and raised by zebras in the Belgian rainforest, or whatever.  But I’m not going to, because a) I’m not sure how interesting that kind of stuff is, to anyone else and b) you’ve probably already skipped to the part you came here for. But if you do want to know anything specific, just get in touch and ask me.  There are loads of ways you can do that.

Anyway, my name is Jonathan Meres and I’m a children’s author. I’ve written about 35 books (I really should count them some time) but am probably best known for my World of Norm series.  Sold loads.  Translated into loads of different languages.  World Book Day author blah blah blah.  But hey, guess what?  I haven’t always been an author. Here are some of the other things I’ve been:

  • Kid
  • Paper boy
  • Merchant seaman
  • Ice cream van driver
  • Hand model
  • Security guard
  • Pop video extra
  • Actor
  • Comedian
  • TV & radio scriptwriter

Now here are some things, I would have liked to have been:

  • Footballer
  • Astronaut
  • Rock star
  • Bus driver

I’d still like to be a bus driver, by the way..
