 Ransom Riggs Biography

Ransom Riggs is an American writer and filmmaker best known for the book "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children."

Riggs was born in Maryland on a 200-year-old farm, and grew up in Florida where he attended the Pine View School for the Gifted. He studied English literature at Kenyon College and studied film at the University of Southern California. His work on short films for the Internet and blogging for Mental Floss got him a job writing "The Sherlock Holmes Handbook," which was released as a tie-in to the 2009 Sherlock Holmes film.

Riggs had collected curious vernacular photographs and approached his publisher, Quirk Books, about using some of them in a picture book. On the suggestion of an editor, Riggs used the photographs as a guide from which to put together a narrative. The resulting book was "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children," which made The New York Times Best Seller list. A film adaptation of the book was released in the United States on September 30, 2016. It was directed by Tim Burton from a screenplay by Jane Goldman.

Another book inspired by old photographs, "Talking Pictures" was published by Harper Collins in October 2012. Miss Peregrine became a series when Riggs published "Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine's Children" on January 14, 2014, followed by "Library of Souls (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children #3)" (2015), and "A Map of Days (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children #3)" (2018). Riggs also released "Tales of the Peculiar" in 2016.
