Jim Pipe



I've written over 170 titles on a wide range of topics, including Augmented Reality projects, puzzle books and pop-up books, though history is my real love. I also create highly interactive 3D book apps and especially enjoy creating horrible sound effects. Hobbies include watching Kung Fu movies, eating French food and diving off cliffs, though usually not at the same time.

Jim Pipe has written numerous non-fiction books for children, many on historical subjects. He lives in Dublin, Ireland.
