Jeff Kinney

Biography

Date of birth: 19 February 1971

When not writing new Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, Jeff Kinney has been a computer programmer and a computer games designer... no really, he actually makes money writing books and creating computer games - living the dream!

To date, eight Diary of a Wimpy Kid books have been published, plus The Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Do-It-Yourself Book and The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary: How Greg Heffley Went Hollywood, describing the journey of the books from page to screen in Jeff's laugh-out-loud style.

Three films have been made based on the first three Diary of a Wimpy Kid books: Diary of a Wimpy Kid (released 2010), Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules (released 2011) and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (released 2012). A fourth film, based on Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever and filmed live-action or in animation, will be released in 2014.

In 2009, Jeff was named one of Time magazine's 100 "Most Influential People" in the world. Cor blimey.

Jeff is an American author - don't worry, he's one of the good ones - and writes at home in Massachusetts, but he's often visting Waterstones bookshops in the UK, especially after publishing a new book, so keep an eye open for future book events with Jeff.
