Marcus is a big kid in a man’s body.
A lover of reading books (as long as they are under 400 pages and not boring!) he started Big Kids Book Club as a Covid project turned podcasting passion.
He found books again after many years away from them when reading them to his son.
His favourite genres are Historical, Adventure and Sports fiction.
When not working on the Book Club or the podcast, he’s usually playing games on the Nintendo Switch.
Emma Keane is an enigma… or she hasn’t written a segment for her profile?
Rab Ferguson is a writer of YA and Middlegrade fiction. His YA novel The Landfill Mountains, about teenagers scavenging waste in a burning world, and storytelling as magic, is available for pre-order now. He’s also a performing storyteller, and can sometimes be found wearing a woollen cape.
When not writing, Rab works with young people in a mental health charity. He likes cycling, cats, and Bruce Springsteen, but he has yet to find a practical way to combine those interests.
Rab finds it strange writing about himself in third person, but would very much appreciate if you would visit his website www.rabtales.co.uk and consider pre-ordering The Landfill Mountains. You can also follow him on @rabtales on twitter and instagram. He’s very happy to be contacted around his writing or with any ideas for collaborations.
