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.

It Has Come to My Attention - Origami Yoda

It is a dark time at Ralph McQuarrie Middle School. After suffering several Origami Yoda–related humiliations, Harvey manages to get Dwight suspended from school for being a “troublemaker.” Origami Yoda pleads with Tommy and Kellen to save Dwight by making a new case file—one that will show how Dwight’s presence benefits McQuarrie. With the help of their friends, Tommy and Kellen record cases such as “Origami Yoda and the Pre-eaten Wiener,” “Origami Yoda and the Exploding Pizza Bagels,” and “Origami Yoda and Wonderland: The Musical.” But Harvey and his Darth Paper puppet have a secret plan that could make Dwight’s suspension permanent . . .
