Matt Brown - Author

About the Author

Matt Brown has worked as a radio producer, DJ and TV presenter, appearing on children’s channel Nickelodeon and hosting shows including The Bigger Breakfast, Love Island Aftersun and “I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here Now!”. He is currently the host of Heart Thames Valley radio breakfast show. He has held snakes in jungles, driven huskies in the arctic circle and persuaded a taxi driver in Delhi to let him drive his cab.
As a former children’s TV presenter Matt really knows how to make kids laugh. Matt also admits that writing the books is “a pathetic attempt to curry favour” with his two sons (aged 4 and 7).

Matt has always loved writing stories and has done so ever since he was a kid. He says: “Basically the story is autobiographical even though I have never travelled through time. Compton Valance is a ten-year old, much cooler version of myself.”

See Matt read the first chapter of Compton Valance - and other videos - on his youtube channel.
