There’s nothing normal about Uncle Chunk. He’s eccentric, unpredictable and full of deep dark secrets.

So what’s he doing turning up at Billy’s house? He hasn't been seen for years. Has he just popped in, or is there more to this mystery than meets a were-dragon's eye?

And that’s not the only thing Billy's got to worry about. Miss Hicks the werewolf has returned to school and his nemesis Scratchhook is watching his every move . . .

He first started making up stories for his two young sons when they were living by the beach in Tasmania, and 17 published books later, he’s still going strong!

Nick has 4 series of books on the shelves, all for children aged 6 to 10. Saurus Street, which is about time travelling dinosaurs; Billy is a Dragon, which is about shape-shifting were-beasts; Samurai vs Ninja, which is about shuriken-filled battles; and the ‘How To’ series, which is about kids getting horribly lost in history. Nick has lived and worked in Australia, the US and Asia, and arrived back in the UK in 2015.
