Biography

Author of the brand new York Occasions bestselling publication Miss Peregrine’s House for Peculiar Kids. He followed using the book’s sequels Hollow Town and Library of Souls, ultimately penning the friend books Miss Peregrine’s Journal for Peculiar Kids, Tales from the Peculiar, and visual novels of the initial series. After graduating from Kenyon University with a level in English books, he analyzed film in the University or college of Southern California. Like a blogger for Mental Floss in his early profession, this gained him employment composing the The Sherlock Holmes Handbook to accompany this year’s 2009 feature film. In 2013, he wedded fellow writer Tahereh Mafi, the inventor of the favorite books The Juliette Chronicles. Famous movie director Tim Burton brought Miss Peregrine’s House for Peculiar Kids to the big screen in 2016.
