I’m a reader, a writer and a teacher. I’ve always loved reading, held a passion for writing and think that being a teacher to young people is about the best thing you can do on the planet.
I moved up to Yorkshire last summer with my lovely wife, and decided it was finally time to give the writing thing a real go – the result: my debut book, Raid of the Ratskull Rodents.
Having taught in KS2 classes for the last five years, first in Essex, then in North London and now in Yorkshire. I felt that that my passion for writing and knowledge of young readers would allow me to write in a way in which I knew my students would enjoy and be inspired by.
My real-time story Chase for the Championship, which is available to download for free from my site, was inspired by me wanting to get some of my own students hooked on a story that was football themed and fun.
I also enjoy writing about teaching and have a blog at https://teachingforteachers.school.blog/ where I’ve written posts with advice and tips for other like-minded teachers.
I’m already working on other ideas to follow my first book, and when I’m not doing that, you’ll most likely find me hiking through the Yorkshire Dales, or cuddled up with my wife on the sofa with a good book.
