Justin Davies's headshot

I am a children's author currently writing comedy adventures for 7-10 year olds. My aim is to make kids laugh by finding the funny all around us. My school author visits and festival events focus on what an author is and how there are stories in all of us. I include some detail on how and why I became a children's author, and why I believe writing funny stories can help change the world!

My events always include a reading and end with an interactive session plus Q&A. I can offer ideas for teachers to take back to the classroom for further book-related activity. Having spent over twenty years flying around the world as cabin crew which I still do I am comfortable dealing with large numbers of people; I also have a performing background in amateur pantomime, with audiences of over 800 including many excited/excitable children. I have experience chairing children's book festival panel events.

As a network organiser for the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators in Scotland I have helped run several events and creative writing workshops for writers.
