Will Hadcroft was born in 1970 and wanted to be a writer from the age of ten. Inspired by Clive King’s Stig of the Dump and John Christopher’s Tripods trilogy, he dreamed of writing a book. In his teen years he came to appreciate the television scriptwriter, with Robert Holmes, Terrance Dicks, Eric Saward (Doctor Who) and Kenneth Johnson (The Bionic Woman, The Incredible Hulk, V – the Mini Series) becoming his heroes.
Throughout the 1990s Hadcroft wrote for science fiction fanzines and semi-pro magazines. He also appeared on the TV documentaries Right to Reply (Channel four Television) and My Science Fiction Life (BBC4).
Will published his debut children’s novel Anne Droyd and Century Lodge in 2002. It was later republished as an “Asperger adventure” in 2004 alongside Will’s autobiography The Feeling’s Unmutual. The latter was endorsed by Doctor Who actor Colin Baker and Tripods author John Christopher.
In 2008 Will published Anne Droyd and the House of Shadows. The third instalment, Anne Droyd and the Ghosts of Winter Hill, is due in February 2012.
His latest book, a teen novel entitled The Blueprint, will be released this Fall.
