Welcome to my website

Welcome to my brand-new website. I hope you like the new look as much as I do and find it easy to get around.

This website is for you-my readers-and for parents, teachers, librarians, bookshops and fans of all ages. Here you can find out all about me and my writing.

As there are now quite a lot of books I’ve broadly divided them into age-groups to make it easier to find the right book for you. If you are finding it difficult to to obtain a copy of a particular book you can always buy it direct from me (send me an email) or from the Edge of the World Bookshop (see below)

I love meeting my readers. Check out the Events Page to see some of the things that I’ve done. If you would like me to come into your school, go to the School Visits Page to see my guidelines on setting up a visit.

And to see what I’m up to at the moment, read my blog which I will be updating regularly. Or if you are old enough, catch me on Facebook at Chris Higgins Author or on Twitter @CHigginsAuthor.
