WELCOME TO THE HOME OF BUNKO
Bunko was born in 1962 in a rough old industrial town in the Welsh valleys called Merthyr Tydfil. While some people got born into wealth and riches, he was given a simple nickname (that no one understood) and a great upbringing.
‘You can walk tirelessly around the world in search of comfortable shoes… only to find a pair already under the bed.'
Sometimes Bunko writes books for grown-up people with heads like damaged fruit. But his real passion is when he meets up with the dark, slightly manic teenager who shares a room in his imagination and dresses like a Red Indian in punk rock trousers and odd socks.
Together they create a wondrous world full of strange looking creatures, 3 legged dogs, spiders with attitudes and demons who turn nice when they are nasty.
‘I started writing because there were so many ideas running around and around my mind with nowhere to go. Writing helped to drill a hole in my skull and let the ideas escape.’ Bunko 2010
