James Catchpole

  • 5 stars across 1 book
    James Catchpole read Music at Oxford University and later joined his family's literary agency, which allowed him to use his love of words, rhythm and narrative to polish up author's stories and present them to publishers. Today, James is an established literary agent. He has also played amputee football for great Britain and manages the Arsenal amputees team. Now he is a debut chiildren's author too! Karen George has always loved drawing and painting and as a child
    it was her absolute favourite thing to do. A graduate of The Royal College of Art, Karen used to paint sets for films but turned her creative attentions to picture book illustration after becoming mum
    to her two young sons. In 2009 Karen won the inaugural Waterstones' Picture This competition and illustrated Julia Donaldson's story, Freddie and the Fairy. She now writes her own stories as well as illustrating, and lives in Bristol with her family and Dr Calamari the cat.
