Marc ter Horst is a Dutch writer of nonfiction children’s books. Growing up upstairs from his parents’ bicycle shop, he read many books and comics. Marc studied literature, but soon found himself more interested in geology, astronomy, and evolution. Working at the National Institute for Curriculum Development, he discovered his real talent was explaining things in little words. Eventually he found the courage to become an independent copywriter and wrote for websites, museums of (natural) history, and educational publishers. He is the author of several nonfiction books for kids, and his books have been translated into several languages. Marc lives in Nijmegen in the Netherlands with his girlfriend, two kids, and two naughty rabbits.
