Ross MacKenzie grew up in Renfrew, and knew from a young age that he wanted to become a writer. In fact, he wrote his first book – an illustrated short story about a hungry crocodile called Crunchy Colin – in a smuggled school jotter when he was seven. Ross is a graphic designer by day. He still lives in Renfrew with his wife and baby daughter, but spends much of his spare time in another world.
Zac and the Dream Pirates won the Scottish Children’s Book Award in 2012, and The Nowhere Emporium won both the Blue Peter Awards Best Story and the Scottish Children’s Book Awards in 2016.
