He is a primary school teacher and credits experiences in the classroom with providing inspiration for his stories.

In 2010 Dear Mr Author won the Welsh Books Council's Tir na n-Og Award for the best English Language Book of the Year. His latest novel Charlie Underwood Fights Back was published by Pont Books in 2014. Meet Sam Willoughby.
Out-distanced in the swimming pool and upstaged on the football field, he's had a run of bad luck. Or so he thinks. But when a mysterious stranger claims to be the author directing Sam's life, it begins to sound more sinister. Especially when things start to go wrong for him down at the Riverfront Theatre in front of a capacity audience.
Is there anything Sam can do to change the script?

Winner of the Tir na n-Og Awards 2010: Best English-language Category
