Hello everyone, I’m Joe Richardson. I live just outside Belfast with my wife, baby son and miniature schnauzer.
I’ve been teaching in primary schools now for over a decade. It has been the children who have inspired and motivated me to write my novels. I love the enthusiasm the children display when a book sparks their imagination and grabs their interest. I am forever chatting with my pupils about their current reads, and I was eager that someday it would be my own book we’d be discussing. And so here we are.
It has taken over four years, countless rewrites and endless edits before I was happy to push for publishing. The reviews from the readers have made it all worthwhile. I hope you enjoy it too!
The best writing advice I have received:‘To become a great writer, begin by becoming a great reader.’
