John Condon has been writing picture books for five years. Before that he wrote screenplays and made short movies, a couple of which you can still find floating around on the web - if you look hard enough.
His debut picture book The Wondrous Dinosaurium (Maverick Arts) was Maverick's fastest selling book of the year, and was nominated for their Book of the Year Award 2018. His latest picture book, a currently untitled pirate story (Nosy Crow) is due to set sail in 2020.
John is a Creative Director at a branding agency. He lives with his family in a leafy London suburb and enjoys weekend walks in the park - at least, that’s what he tells people. In reality he loves nothing more than to sit on a comfy sofa, with a fresh cup of tea, dreaming up new story ideas. Very occasionally he will go for a walk in the park but only after putting up a good fight.
