David McPhail

I write funny books and historical fiction for children. Thorfinn the Nicest Viking: The Awful Invasion was shortlisted for the inaugural LOLLIES in 2016. The book spawned a series, of which the 7th was published in 2019. My newest book series is Top Secret Grandad and Me. I also write non-fiction, such as Vikings in Britain for Collins Big Cat, and Castaway for OUP, and e-books through Fiction Express. I enjoy getting out and visiting schools, festivals and libraries to talk about writing. I've also enjoyed working as an author in residence.

David first appeared at BOOKMARK as part of the Children's Festival when he introduced local 7-11 year olds to The Nicest Viking.
