About the Author

Dominic Barker

Dominic Barker was born in 1966 in Southport only months after England won the World Cup. He studied English at Birmingham University, and subsequently was a stand-up comic with the likes of Frank Skinner and Alan Davies, then a secondary school teacher, before writing his first series for young readers about a teenage detective, Mickey Sharp. Dominic has since written three anarchic spoof-quests featuring the hapless hero Blart (the boy who didn’t want to save the world) and is currently working on a new stand alone novel called Adam and the Arkonauts. Dominic lives in Spain.
