More About the Author


Winner of the Roald Dahl 2012 Funny Prize!

Here's the little author biography for my latest series, Dark Lord: the Teenage Years, and Dark Lord: A Fiend in Need:

'Jamie Thomson is the minion and slave of the Dark Lord, Dirk Lloyd. Jamie has been writing books, comics and computer games for his Dark Master for many years now. He lives in the dungeons below his Master's Iron Tower, chained to a desk, where he spends every day writing for his overlord. Or else.'

The Dark Lord series is a comedic fantasy about a Dark Lord trapped in the body of a human boy here in modern day earth. Bit like my own life, really. The first book, Dark Lord: the Teenage Years has won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2012, which is awesomely cool!

Format: Paperback
Dirk's nemesis, the white wizard Hasdruban, has travelled to our world in pursuit of his foe. Worse, he's Dirk's new headmaster! The action hots up as Dirk must find a way back to the Darklands where he will find the key to resolving their ancient battle once and for all. But never mind saving the world, Sooz is setting up a Goth rock band with Gargon and the paladin Rufino. Lordi lord.

This is a perfect blend of laughs, thrills and fabulous imagination that will entertain and inspire kids and adults alike. But is it really the last of Dirk's adventures? I hope not!

Exellent,breath-taking,brill and every person should read it .Old or young,fast or slow, keen or not on reading.It is by far one of the best books I have ever read.It is an unique idea to put Saron,voldemort and all of the other dark lords into one high lord of the dark and banish him to earth in the body of a thirteen year old boy

The first two books in the Dark Lord trilogy were hugely entertaining, and the third concluding part does not disappoint. It follows on neatly from 'A Fiend in Need' with a new and altogether more dire threat to Dirk and his friends. The characters feel well rounded and familiar by now and this story does not shy away from making all of them more complex. The story progresses along an exciting pace and feels well thought out. As before there is occasional use esoteric phrases, but that fits in with the Dirk character and taps in to the fantasy vibe. Besides children need to learn new things and delight in repeating new strange phrases that they pick up.

My favourite aspect of all the books is the exploration of the nature of good and evil. My own children usually talk in terms of 'goodies' and 'baddies', as kids do. Dark Lord really digs deep in to this and shows how people are not just good/evil, instead it's all about your actions and how they affect people. It's not subtle, for adults at least, but it is clear, though provoking and above all funny. In fact I think the way these books explore this theme they should be made key reading in RE/PSCHE lessons in schools. My 7yr old has a greater understanding of this now (and I can think of some firebrand US politicians that could do with learning some things from this!).

So back to Eternal Detention - funny, thought provoking, exciting, and a damn fine read. In the same vein of family animated movies these days it's something adults will enjoy as much as the kids they are reading with. If I have one criticism it's that it's too short. Quite a bit shorter than the first two and as a result the story feels a little hurried (I almost dropped a star for that). It has a feel of a book that's had a publishers editorial knife to it.

My son has read all three as they've come out. Loved them and laughed out loud in places. He read this last one at just 11. Not a hard read but well written and fun for the age group.

Having read the other books in the series and loved them, my son read this in a week and thoroughly enjoyed it, recommending it to anyone aged around ten.
