When not writing new Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, Jeff Kinney has been a computer programmer and a computer games designer… no really, he actually makes money writing books and creating computer games. In 2009, Jeff was named one of Time magazine’s 100 “Most Influential People” in the world. Cor blimey.
Jeff is an American author – and writes at home in Massachusetts, but he’s often visting Waterstones bookshops in the UK, especially after publishing a new book, so keep an eye open for future book events with Jeff.
“Ten years in, I’m having a blast. I’m as excited and energized about these books as I’ve ever been, and I think The Getaway is going to be one of the best Wimpy Kid books, I’m very grateful to all of the readers who have stuck with me over the years, and to the ones who are just starting the series.” – Jeff Kinney
