About the Author

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

Long time, no write. Hey to all you Harry Potter freaks. The Wizard up and running again! Sign up at The quizbook for HP. So here we go. I looked at the past Harry. "Levicorpse," I said. I woke him up. He went nuts. "Libercorpse," I said. I put him in his old time. We went back to our daily lives. "Ahhh! Smoke!" I heard. I get my wand ready. I saw a fire. "Aguamenti," I casted. It went out. I put out the rest. Everyone was OK. I was so tired. I flopped down on the ground and rested. It was 5 days when I was out. I woke up in the Hospital Wing. I saw a Tranquilizer. That was my problem. So I went back to sleep. Next one is going to be at Creepypasta: An Anthology
