About The Author
Jeff Kinney was born in 1971 in Maryland, USA, and attended the University of Maryland in the early 1990s. It was there that Jeff ran a comic strip called ''Igdoof'' in the campus newspaper, and he knew he wanted to be a cartoonist.
However, Jeff was not successful in getting his comic strip syndicated after college, and in 1998 he started writing down ideas for Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which when released as a print series in April 2007, became a New York Times bestseller, eventually reaching the #1 spot. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules was released in January 2008 and also became a #1 bestseller.
The Diary of A Wimpy Kid series is now an international bestseller and has now been made into two blockbuster films. As well as being a bestselling author, Jeff is also an online developer and designer. He lives with his family in Massachusetts, USA.
Here's Jeff talking about Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever in this video:
