Chris Callaghan - Author

Chris’ first job was on a Pick 'n' Mix counter, followed by a career in the Royal Air Force as an aircraft mechanic. Even though fully trained on how jet fighters work and fly, he still suspects that there is a little magic involved somewhere.

Then as an Environmental Scientist he spent a lot of time getting wet on factory roofs, measuring pollution. He left all that behind to become a Stay At Home Dad where his brain began fizzing with stories. His wife and daughter kept insisting that he wrote some of these stories down. So he did.

After writing The Great Chocoplot for his daughter as a Christmas present he entered it into Chicken House’s Open Coop, a one-day amnesty for unpublished writers, where it was immediately snapped up for publication. He lives in Newcastle with his family.
