James Brown - Author

James Brown filled in a careers questionnaire when he was 13 which told him he was definitely going to be a teacher and an illustrator - and it was right! James studied English Literature in Sheffield and Stockholm before taking up Creative Writing at St Andrews University. He was one of five illustrators to win the SCBWI's Undiscovered Voices 2014 competition, and since then James has been balancing his job as an English teacher with writing and illustrating books for children of all ages. James grew up in Nottingham where he now lives with his wife, daughters and a cat called Peg. With My Mummy was his first picture book for Macmillan.
