Brian Jacques Profile Picture

English writer James Brian Jacques is best known for his Redwall series of novels, along with his short story collections and the Castaways of the Flying Dutchman series. Born in Liverpool in 1939, he left school when he was fifteen to become a merchant sailor. His first book, Redwall, was based on stories he told to children at a school for the blind where he delivered milk. A former teacher championed the manuscript to a publisher, who not only published the book but contracted with Jacques for five more volumes in the series. The books have since sold millions of copies worldwide and been translated into twenty-eight languages. An animated series based on Redwall was aired on PBS. Jacques died in 2011.
