Hello and welcome to the website for Kieran Larwood, author of ‘Freaks’, which won the Times/Chicken House Children’s Fiction competition 2011.  It is now available in hardback, paperback and e-book formats, and has been translated into German.

The book is now available in book stores and online.  If you want to read some reviews or find out the latest news, upcoming events etc, then please read the Freaks and blog pages, or follow me on Twitter or facebook.  I have also added a ‘bonus material’ section with some extra bits and bobs.

I am represented by The Blair Partnership. ( tel 0044 (0) 207 504 2520)

If you have any questions about the book, or writing in general, I would love to hear from you.  Please get in touch via the contact page.  Thanks for stopping by.
