Matt Dickinson - Children's Author

Matt Dickinson is a writer and film-maker with an enduring (and sometimes dangerous) passion for wild places and people who push themselves to their limits. He was trained as a film maker at the BBC and has subsequently filmed many award-winning documentaries for National Geographic Television, Discovery Channel and Channel 4.

As a director and cameraman he has worked with some of the world’s top climbers and adventurers, joining them on their expeditions to the Himalayas and beyond. Along the way he has survived some life-threatening dramas including an avalanche in Antarctica and a killer storm on Everest. 

Matt’s proudest moment was filming on the summit of Mount Everest having successfully scaled the treacherous North Face of the world’s highest peak. He is only the fifth British climber ever to do so, and his account of his ascent – The Death Zone – was a bestselling book, selling over 250,00 copies. His writing credits also include two novels for adults, High Risk and Black Ice, both published in the UK and in numerous foreign editions. Mortal Chaos is the first book in Matt’s adrenaline-fuelled three-book series for teens.
