Come and meet the Spectre Collectors, the ancient organisation that, with its advanced tech and mysterious magic, protects us all from supernatural threats.
Meet the author
Who are you?
I’m Barry Hutchison, author of over eighty books for children and teenagers, and adults who never properly grew up. I live in Fort William in the Highlands of Scotland with my wife, two children, and very annoying dog.
What else do you do?
As well as books, I also write comics like The Beano, DC Super Hero Girls, Angry Birds and Supermansion.
I also write animation, including all six episodes of Dreamworks TV’s upcoming ‘Kip Van Creepy: Delivery Boy’ and an episode of ‘Supermansion’ starring Bryan Cranston and Chris Pine.
What's the best thing about being an author?
Ooh, too many things to mention. I love pretty much all aspects of being a writer – especially getting out and meeting readers at schools and festivals.
Probably the best part, though, is seeing a finished book in a bookshop, and thinking that the nonsense in my head has become a real physical thing people can pick up and take home with them!
What's one interesting thing about you?
I was the original founder of the real Spectre Collectors when I was ten years old. Unfortunately, we never caught a ghost, but not for want of trying.
