Will Mabbitt likes to write. He writes on the train, in the corner of cafes, and sometimes, when his laptop runs out of power, he writes in his head. Will has a background in children's media, producing digital content for Disney, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. He lives with his family, cats and a woodlouse infestation in Lewes on the south coast of England. Fred never wanted to be an astronaut or drive a train when he grew up. Right from the beginning he knew he wanted to draw silly pictures of a living ... And some decades later he's living the dream! Interrupted only by tea breaks and toddlers, Fred works from his home studio in Swindon, Wiltshire, UK where he lives with his wife and two young children. Captain Falsebeard is his first picture book.
