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’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!

Teachers, would you like me to visit your school? My lively workshops inspire reluctant boys and keen readers alike!  Click here for more information, or contact me on or 07719 814429.

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!

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.
