  • JD Kirk is the pen name of multi-award-winning author, screenwriter, and writer of comics, Barry Hutchison. Born and raised in Fort William in the Highlands of Scotland, Barry/JD wanted to be a writer from the age of nine, when a kindly librarian wrote his name on the spine of a notebook in which he’d written a terrible short story, and put it on the shelf. Since then, he has written over 140 books for children as Barry Hutchison, over 15 books for adults as Barry J. Hutchison, and is now thoroughly enjoying murdering people as JD Kirk. Barry still lives in Fort William with his wife and two children. He has no idea what the JD stands for. Barry was Shortlisted for the Kindle Storyteller Award 2021 and 2022. He won the Royal Mail Award for Scottish Children’s Books in 2010, and the Scottish Children’s Book Award in 2012. He won the Lennox Author Award in 2011.
