John Connolly - Author

JOHN CONNOLLY sees a strong connection between his adult and children’s books … ‘Most writers only have one or two themes to which they constantly return, and one of my themes is childhood. I make no apologies for that, and the Samuel Johnson books ‘are simply another aspect of that fascination – albeit one that allows me to be a little funnier than in my adult books, and permits my imagination a different, and perhaps freer rein.’ With strong opinions on how scary books for children can be, he brings a noire element to his writing for youngsters that will chill and thrill and entertain. Born in Dublin, he is a bestselling adult novelists known for his Charlie Parker mystery thriller books.

He has also co-written a young adult novel called CONQUEST with Jennie Ridyard.
