About the Author

Joe Craig is a novelist, screenwriter, songwriter and performer. His award-winning thrillers for children have earned him a place alongside Anthony Horowitz, Charlie Higson and Robert Muchamore as "one of the best spy kids authors... outstanding at both writing and plotting." (The Times) The first book in his best-selling Jimmy Coates series was published by HarperCollins in 2005. Since then the six books in the series have won over young fans across the world and converted thousands of previously reluctant readers with an electric mix of action, suspense and thrilling twists. Packed houses at festivals, bookshops, libraries and schools all over the world have experienced The Joe Craig Show. His tall tales, improvised stories, and surprising theories about writing have enthralled and entertained audiences every bit as much as his books. He studied Philosophy at Cambridge University then became a songwriter, winning numerous awards for his music before unexpectedly turning to writing books. The success of his books led to a new career writing movies. He now splits his writing time between novels for children and adults, non-fiction and film projects. When he's not writing he's visiting schools, playing the piano, drawing, inventing snacks, playing snooker, cricket and football, watching a movie or reading. He lives in London with his wife (broadcaster & adventurer Mary-Ann Ochota), his dog (Harpo the labradonkey) and his dwarf crocodile (Professor Sven).
