Ross MacKenzie is the author of fantasy adventure Zac and the Dream Pirates. He grew up in Renfrew, just outside Glasgow, and knew from a young age that he wanted to be a writer. In fact, he completed his first illustrated book – about a crocodile called “Crunchy Colin” – in a smuggled school jotter when he was seven. Ross studied graphic design at college, and after graduating went on to become a page designer for the Daily Record.
Ross still lives in Renfrew with his wife Aileen and their young daughter but he spends most of his spare time in another world.
