John has been writing picture book stories for five years. Before that he wrote screenplays and made short movies, a couple of which you can still find floating around on the web. His first picture book, The Wondrous Dinosaurium, was published by Maverick Arts in 2018. His second picture book, a currently untitled pirate story, will be published by Nosy Crow in 2020.
John studied Graphic design at Kingston University and has been a professional designer for more than 20 years. He is currently Creative Director at a branding agency.
He lives with his family in a leafy London suburb and enjoys weekend walks in the park. Well, that’s what he tells people. In reality he loves nothing more than to sit on a comfy sofa, with a fresh cup of tea, dreaming up new story ideas.* Very occasionally he will go for a walk in the park but only after putting up a good fight.
John is represented by Felicity Trew at the Caroline Sheldon Literary Agency.
*He currently has 612 story ideas, although he would prefer it if more of them were actual stories.
