About Antony Wootten Illustrations Agents & Publishers

Just to give you an idea of what to expect from my novels, I would say they are dramatic and often hard-hitting. I don’t pull any punches or hold back on detail and depth just because I’m writing for children. In fact, the only reason I call them ‘children’s’ books is that they have children as the main characters, but I believe they are just as likely to be enjoyed by adults. My limericks collection, There Was An Old Fellow From Skye, is a totally different kettle of fish though, of course!

I have written three short novels for Purple Mash, the fantastic online reading resource for primary schools by 2Simple: Buster’s Blitz, The Lost Myth of Mathos, and Serpents of the Nebula.

Books for adults:

When writing for adults rather than children, I write as David Hall. And I Wish I’d Asked Why is a collection of short stories for adults., and Gordon Medley’s Final Frontier is a comedy sci-fi novel. Find out more here.
