THE CHERUB SERIES
FOR OFFICIAL PURPOSES, THESE CHILDREN DO NOT EXIST...
'10 out of 10.' - The Guardian
'Crackling tension and high-octane drama.' — Daily Mail
'Punchy, exciting, glamorous and, what's more, you'll completely wish it was true' - Sunday Express
A terrorist doesn't let strangers in her flat because they might be undercover police or intelligence agents, but her children bring their mates home and they run all over the place. The terrorist doesn't know that one of these kids has bugged every room in her house, made copies of all her computer files and stolen her address book. The kid works for CHERUB.
CHERUB agents are aged between ten and seventeen. They live in the real world, slipping under adult radar and getting information that sends criminals and terrorists to jail.
AUTHOR OPENS HIS BIG GOB
MUCHAMORE ON CHERUB
In 1998, my twelve-year-old nephew moaned that books were for geeks and there was nothing cool to read. I’d always wanted to be a writer, and his comment stuck in my mind for a few years, gradually turning into the idea for CHERUB.
CHERUB was going to be about kids who lived in the real world. I didn’t want clean cut heroes like Harry Potter or Alex Rider. James Adams was going to save the world while fighting, swearing, getting drunk, lusting after girls and using the toilet…
I never imagined writing seventeen books, and more than a million words about James and his friends. Or that the books would go on to sell over 15 million copies in 26 languages. I got to quit my boring job, made lots of money and traveled the world. It was AMAZING!
These days, the question I get asked most is, “Will you write more CHERUB books?" For now, the answer is no. I often point out to younger fans that I’ve been writing CHERUB books for longer than they’ve been alive! It’s twenty years since I first had the idea for CHERUB and now I need to take a break and focus on other things.
But CHERUB isn’t dead! We’re hoping to make a TV series, the graphic novels are still in production. And maybe some day I’ll feel inspired to write another CHERUB story. But I don’t think that will happen for a very long time!
