Dugald Steer

Dugald A. Steer was born in 1965 and lives in Surrey. His love of books and reading led him to study English Literature and Philosophy at Bristol University where he was an avid contributor to the Poetry Society Magazine. After stints working for Friends of the Earth and the Duchy of Lancaster Office, Dugald trained to teach English and spent the next five years in Spain, living in Galicia and Andalucia, writing in his spare time.

Dugald Steer now works as a freelance author for Templar Publishing, for whom he worked as an inhouse writer and editor for ten years. He has written a large number of books, including Mythical Mazes, Scary Fairies, An Accidental Christmas, Just One More Story and The Night Tiger among others. He has also made contributions to many of Templar’s best known series’, including Maurice Pledger’s Peek and Find series, and Derek Matthews’ highly successful Happy Snappy® series, for which he has written many books. He has edited many other books, has created Picture This... and Alphabet with Alison Jay and has also written The Toys’ Easter Surprise and the Little Mouse series. Dugald has wrote the handbook How to Be a Knight which he recently followed up with How to be an Explorer. Dugald Steer is the author of the hugely successful Ology™ series that includes Dragonology™ and Monsterology™ (writing as Dr. Ernest Drake), Egyptology (as Emily Sands), Wizardology™ (as the wizard Merlin!), Pirateology™ (as Capt. William Lubber) and Mythology (as Lady Hestia Evans), as well as the Ology™ handbooks, model packs, field guides and the Dragonology™ Pocket Adventures.
