Alastair Chisholm writes short stories and children’s books. His picture book The Prince and the Witch and the Thief and the Bears was shortlisted for the Scottish Book Trust Bookbug Prize, and his debut children’s science fiction novel Orion Lost was nominated for the Carnegie Medal.

Alastair lives in Edinburgh with his wife, two children, and a cat, and he thinks it’s weird to refer to himself in the third person. He likes biscuits.
