Author A-Z > Terry Pratchett
Terry Pratchett was born in 1948 and lives in Wiltshire, where he tries to write books in between answering mail. After doing just about every job possible in provincial journalism, he became press officer for four nuclear power stations, but all this came to an end in 1987 when it became obvious that writing books was much more enjoyable than real work. There are now over thirty titles in the Discworld series, and numerous related books.
