Jeff Norton is a London based writer-producer, author of the award-winning 'MetaWars' series from Orchard Books and the upcoming 'Memoirs of a Neurotic Zombie' series from Faber.
A reluctant reader as an adolecsent, Jeff created the futuristic world of 'MetaWars' to rival the most exciting video games and to challenge readers with big ideas. His aim was to write "a video game you can read."
His next book series is something completely different! 'Memoirs of a Neurotic Zombie' (out August 7, 2014 from Faber) is the laugh out loud misadventures of twelve-year-old Adam Meltzer, a tweenage zombie out to solve his own murder.
Originally from Canada, Jeff began his career in advertising, worked in the movie business in Hollywood where he produced the critically acclaimed interactive film 'Choose Your Own Adventure,' and upon moving to the U.K., managed the literary estate of Enid Blyton, Britain's best-loved author. He now writes full time, with a focus on creating big, immersive worlds.
Jeff is also a producer and director in multiple media. He lives north London with his wife and two young sons.
