Ahmet Zappa's picture

Ahmet Zappa

native of Los Angeles, Ahmet is the third of four children born to the legendary rock musician/ composer, Frank Zappa.

As a child, Ahmet struggled with a learning disability which made reading difficult. He eventually dropped out of school (with the consent of his parents) in the eighth grade.

Ahmet later went on to be a musician, an actor, a TV show host, and more recently, a children's book author. 

Hoping to inspire other children (of all ages) like him/unlike him to discover the joy of reading, Ahmet wrote his first novel, The Monstrous Memoirs of a Mighty McFearless. In addition to the writing, Ahmet drew about 300 of the monster illustrations featured in the book. Prior to the manuscript's publication, a copy was leaked and Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer films won a bidding war  purchased the film rights to the book for $1.5 millionan unprecedented deal for a first time children's book author!
