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 Science fiction.
When not working on the Book Club or the podcast, he’s usually playing games on the Nintendo Switch.
He’s currently writing Middle Grade adventures of his own set in galaxy’s not unlike our own, but with cool spaceships and cute space dragons!
Emma is our resident YA specialist, and is also a YA writer herself! Currently completing her Creative Writing and Publishing Masters, she is hard at work keeping up to date with all the teenage trends and tropes. When she’s not recording, Emma loves playing squash and finding indie cafés in which to read and write. And she’s also no stranger to the Playstation! A self-proclaimed nerd, she also loves all things fandoms, from Star Wars to Lord of the Rings to Marvel to Harry Potter.

Rab 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 now. His Middle Grade debut, The Late Crew, is out soon from Onwe Press.
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 check out his work. 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.
