John’s first picture book, The Wondrous Dinosaurium, was published by Maverick Arts in 2018, and was nominated for several awards (although it didn’t win any). His second picture book, The Pirates Are Coming, was published by Nosy Crow in 2020, and has also been nominated for several awards. No wins yet though. Sigh!
He lives with his family in sunny Kent and enjoys weekend walks on the beach. Well, that’s what he tells people. In reality he loves nothing more than to sit in a comfy armchair, with a fresh cup of tea, dreaming up new story ideas.* Very occasionally he will go for a walk on the beach but only after putting up a good fight.
John is represented by Felicity Trew at the Caroline Sheldon Literary Agency.
*He currently has 700 story ideas, although he would prefer it if more of them were actual stories.
