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 -my nineteenth and twentieth will be published this year – I’ve broadly divided them into age-groups for ease of access.

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.
