About the Author

Nick Arnold

Horrible Science author, Nick Arnold, has been writing books and stories since he was a lad. Even in those days his favourite subjects for stories were horrible goings-on, the more gruesome the better! So you see, he hasn't changed a bit!

Nick's first published books appeared when he was working at the University of North London on a project teaching children about nature. This led to a magazine article and then, one day, Nick had a brilliant idea. He said to himself:

"If I can write newspaper articles, then I can write books for other publishers too!"
