Biografía breve
Ransom Riggs (born February 3, 1979) is an American writer and filmmaker best known for the book Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Riggs was born in Maryland in 1979 on a 200-year-old farm, and grew up in Florida, where he attended Pine View School for the Gifted. He studied English literature at Kenyon College, where he was a good friend of John Green. He later 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, and was adapted into the 2016 film of the same name.

Another book inspired by old photographs, Talking Pictures, was published by HarperCollins in October 2012.

The second novel in the Miss Peregrine series, Hollow City, was released in January 2014, with the third installment, Library of Souls, following in September 2015. A spin-off book of short stories, Tales of the Peculiar, was released in September 2016. The fourth novel in the series, A Map of Days, was released in October 2018. The fifth novel in the series, The Conference of the Birds, was released in January 2020.

Riggs married author Tahereh Mafi in 2013. They lived in Santa Monica, California and later moved to Irvine, California. Their first child, a daughter, Layla (means "night" in arabic), was born on May, 30, 2017.

Ahora, siguiendo la pista de una misteriosa carta, emprende un viaje hacia la isla remota de Gales en la que su abuelo se crió. Allí, encuentra vivos a los niños y niñas de las fotografías, aunque los lugareños afirmen que murieron hace años.

A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story.

ntes de que Miss Peregrine les diera un hogar, la historia de los Peculiares se escribía en los Cuentos.

Los cuentos tradicionales siempre contienen una verdad. Y esta colección de cuentos extraños y maravillosos esconde algunas verdades del mundo peculiar. Sus historias son habitadas por princesas de lengua bífida, caníbales amables, damas amigas de fantasmas... Sus páginas esconden información vital para los niños peculiares e incluso pistas para localizar bucles temporales.
