The Beatles were playing on the radio when Adam was born in Leicester. This musical prodigy ended up studying performing arts and forming a band, before moving on to sports journalism and primary school teaching. He ended up training teachers on the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar…

And that’s where he met Charlotte! She says she doesn’t come from anywhere because she moved around a lot when she was growing up. She always wanted to be a writer and worked as a bookseller before training to teach English as a Foreign Language. This took her to the Czech Republic and  Ukraine, before she headed to Zanzibar to teach English to student nurses and met Adam. After their Zanzibari adventure, Adam and Charlotte moved to Oxford where Charlotte started working in publishing and Adam became writer-in-residence at the Roald Dahl Museum before hooking up with the Story Museum in Oxford.

And now we both write! Sometimes together, sometimes on our own. We were delighted that Spaghetti with the Yeti, illustrated by award-winning Lee Wildish, was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Oscar’s First Book Prize and the Sheffield Book Awards.  Treats for a T.Rex also picked up a GOLD Practical Pre-School Award!
