In other careers he has been the editor ofNoddymagazine, and an editor of fiction and nonfiction book titles for various publishers. He is the author of the hugely successfulAstrosaurs,Cows in Action,

The Times||"Who can resist the mix of dinosaurs and space?"
The Sunday Times||"Steve Cole has captured the attention of dinosaur-loving children with this super series of books . . . Exciting and funny, this series is bound to be a hit with budding young readers"
South Wales Argus||"With black and white illustrations to break up the text, this funny, fast moving story should attract young readers, especially boys, and keep them turning the pages. Then, if they're really hooked, they've got the rest of the series to read too"
