Bio: Stephen Briggs

Stephen Briggs

Stephen and Terry played together on Discworld for 25 years and had a lot of fun along the way.

They built a city on a brownfield site, then mapped a world to put it onto. With nothing else to do with their spare time, they wrote the Companion, several diaries, another map and a cook book.

Stephen also took on the unabridged audio books and has recorded more than thirty for Isis, AudioGo & Random House (UK), and Harper Collins and Random House (US), winning several industry awards that he’s secretly very pleased with.

It’s plays, though, that got him into Discworld, and he’s adapted, and published, around twenty Pratchett novels, which have been staged in more than 22 countries. Although he is still cheaper than Charles Dance & Jeremy Irons, his tragedy is that the only way he can get cast as Vetinari is to direct his own plays.

Amongst a couple of top secret projects, Stephen’s also now working on a fast-paced steam punk dramatization of ‘Raising Steam’.

Like Terry, he’s happy to sign stuff at any time…. Unless he’s in the loo, or rushing to an event!
