Hello! I’m a children’s writer. My books have won some awards, including the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize, and my debut novel WILD BOY was named one of the five best of the year in the prestigious Branford Boase Award. I’ve also written picture books, fairy tales, books about history and books with flaps. Lots of flaps.

My new novel – JAKE ATLAS AND THE TOMB OF THE EMERALD SNAKE – is out in January 2017. My mum likes it, so you might too.

Wild Boy is ideal for class topics on the Victorian world, and Jake Atlas is perfect for anyone interested in Ancient Egypt. They’re also great stories! I think.

Have a look around my site. You’ll find stuff about me, my books, and my events at schools and festivals. If you want to get in touch about anything just click this.

Enjoy! Rob
