About Me!


My name is Alex McCall, and I’m a writer.  My book is called Attack of the Giant Robot Chickens and won the 2013 Kelpies Prize. It also won the Younger Readers category of the 2015 Scottish Children’s Book Award. It’s sequel is called Revenge of the Giant Robot Chickens. I’m currently working on a teenage sci-fi novel and looking for an agent.

I also do this other stuff:

  • Post short stories on the second Friday of every month. I took a quick break for 2022 but they’ll be back on the 13th of January, 2023
  • I’ve got a YouTube channel where I’m currently posting up a blind reading of the first book I ever wrote, Demon Hunters. I was 14 when I started it and boy does it show. New episodes released every Friday,

  1. Hi Alex. I’m new to
    Twitter so hoping this is an ok way to reach you. I’m a teacher in Aberdeenshire and looking to read your first book to my class when we study Scottish authors next term. Do you by any chance do school visits? It would be great for the kids to meet the author! Thanks in advance, Esther
