Children’s Novels

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’ve found that they are just as likely to be enjoyed by adults. My limericks collection, There Was An Old Fellow From Skye, is also adult-friendly!
_______________________________ I have written several short novels for Serial Mash, the fantastic online reading resource for primary schools by 2Simple. (Serial Mash is part of Purple Mash.) More of my stories are coming to Serial Mash soon!
_______________________________ The Great Canal Clean Up Written by Antony Wootten Illustrated by Amit Tayal Published by Oxford University Press Jack is fed up with all the litter along the canal path near where he lives. He and his new friend Nadia, decide to do something about it. _______________________________

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 fits into the tragically overlooked Sci-fi Adventure Space Opera Comedy and Affectionate Star Trek Parody genre.
_______________________________ I run a writers’ group in Grosmont, and we have now published two collections of our short stories, Time Well Spent and Wild and Penned.
Grosmont Writers’ Group is a small group of talented writers who live in or near the village of Grosmont in North Yorkshire. They meet fortnightly, usually on Mondays. In each meeting, the members take it in turns to read aloud from something they’ve written, and the rest of the group then offers feedback. It sounds stressful, but the atmosphere is always friendly and supportive. No-one has to read out if they don’t want to, and the emphasis of the feedback is always on helping each other to hone skills. Members usually bring cakes, scones, wine and beer too! New members are welcome. If you are interested, please email me on contact@antonywootten.co.uk. ________________________________
