About the author

"Hiya! I'm James. I live in Middlesbrough and I'm a writer. I write bonkers adventure stories for anyone who wants to read 'em!

I've written two crazy, hilarious novels so far: The Unbelievable Biscuit Factory, which won the New Writing North Children's Novel Award in 2019, and Happytown Must Be Destroyed which never won nothing but I still love it dearly.

My third book is currently hiding somewhere in my brain..."
