It is regarded that Jeff Kinney became a writer because of his grandmother’s influence and drawing on his own influences. Jeffrey ‘Jeff’ Kinney was born on February 19, 1971.

Kinney is an American game designer, cartoonist, producer, and author of several children's books including the infamous book that shot him to fame, entitled Diary of a Wimpy Kid. He is also attributed to be the founder of the children themed website Poptropica.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid is the first book in a five book series that consist of humorous fiction books written by Jeff Kinney. The books subjects are based on the journals of the main character, Greg Heffley.

Appropriately for a child's diary, they are completely full with hand written notes and simple drawings of the life and times of his daily shenanigans and crazy capers. In fact the first three books of the series are concerning a visual novel featured on the show FunBrain; the other books are thought to originate from the actual visual novel as well.

Jeff Kinney has been a long creator of cartoons and comic strips even when he was younger back in his college days. It was actually when he spent time at college that Kinney had the idea to develop and create the popular comic strip Igdoof that ran in the campus newspaper, The Diamondback.

While Kinney was spending his days at college, he always knew that he had the desire and determination to forge a career as a cartoonist. But Kinney was not successful in getting his comic strip syndicated by the time he left college. And in 1998, he began to start writing his ideas which would result in becoming what now is better known as his successful Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
