The author of more than 60 books, Nick Page is nothing if not versatile. He writes for readers of all ages, on a wide range of subjects, including history, literary criticism, children’s stories (traditional and original), novels and the life-story of a seventeenth century dwarf.
He is best known, perhaps, for his writing on the Bible and Christianity, particularly for his use of innovative writing and visual styles. The bestselling Tabloid Bible retold Bible stories in tabloid newspaper format; the Bible Book is the only commentary on the Bible to visualise the life of Jesus as a tube map; and his recent Explorer’s Notes: the Bible included many of his hand-drawn maps and notes culled from his notebooks. His latest writing in this field includes a book of biblical history and the editing of a new Collins Atlas of the Bible.
Before taking up full-time writing some ten years ago, he was the head of communications for a leading charity and before that he founded, and acted in, a touring theatre company.
He lives in Eynsham, Oxfordshire with his wife Claire (with whom he has written many of his children’s books). They have three children, a strangely rambling house and a constantly shifting overdraft. His hobbies include cooking, book-collecting and supporting Watford Football club – although that’s more of a curse than a hobby.
He is not now, nor has he ever been, an accountant.
