Kit Cox - Author - Actor - Artist

Author and illustrator of the Union-verse books and other short stories, creator of  the Steve Jackson game "Evil Ted", host for Hendrick's Gin and actor.  Raised in Maidstone, Kent (where he still lives) on a diet of Boys Own adventures, Carry On movies and Hammer Horror, it stood to reason it would all seep back in later life. Originally an illustrator, Kit branched out to create the stories he knew his pictures needed to tell in greater detail. 

Kit Cox writes under his own name and that of Major Jack Union - the title character of his sci-fi series. The Union-verse books are set in an alternate universe where history and fiction exist alongside each other with the presence of monsters being kept secret by agents of the British Empire.

As well as the writing and artwork, Kit is an accomplished actor with film & tv roles to his name.

Concept and Scriptwriting

Kit both writes as an independent novelist and also as a freelance concept writer, working for companies as diverse as Hornby to Chaosium. 

He has a particular love of scriptwriting - especially slightly dark comedy - suited to film and television adaptation. The majority of his books are written from a very cinematographic point of view and are highly adaptable to visual forms - the advantage of having an artist's imagination as well as a writer's one. Being a dad and husband also means a deep understanding of writing for different age categories, and his previous work as a tutor for disadvantaged youths brings a unique insight into how the power of stories can break down barriers and change lives.
