Scott Allen was brought up in the horse-racing town of Epsom. After discovering he was too tall and heavy to be a jockey, he turned his attention to football. At sixteen he started writing for fanzines before becoming a professional sports writer, editor and digital-content specialist. He is a West Ham supporter, but we don't hold that against him. Scott now lives in Yorkshire with his wife, two children and cat while writing his books, including LLamas go Large and Llamas United. He likes Twiglet sandwiches and still has ambitions of becoming a pirate or an outlaw.
