Jamie Buxton - Author

Jamie Buxton read English at Cambridge and has been writing all his adult life. He taught in States for a while and splits his time between London, Dartmoor, his car, local cafes who are sick of the sight of him, and libraries when he can find one. He is married with one child, plus dog, cats and all their fleas. He has also travelled extensively in the middle east, which is what inspired Temple Boys as a new way of telling the most famous story ever told. He had to go beyond the sights, sounds and smells of old Jerusalem to try and understand what an ordinary boy would do if he came across a man who said he could save the world.
