Joe Craig studied Philosophy at Cambridge University, then became a songwriter. Within a year his love of stories had taken over and he wrote the first novel in the Jimmy Coates series. It was published in 2005. He is now a full time author and likes to keep in touch with his readers through his website www.joecraig.co.uk. When he's not writing he's visiting schools, playing the piano, inventing snacks, playing football, coaching cricket, reading, or watching a movie. He lives in London.
Praise for Jimmy Coates: Revenge
"Boys love this stuff, and so do girls. Jimmy is a pint-sized verision of Robocop or Terminator... Like Anthony Horowitz's splendid fantasies, [these novels] tap into almost everything a bolshy boy wants and feels. Immensely clever, immediately engaging, they will prepare a child for Orwell and Huxley." Amanda Craig, The Times
"Fast-paced and intelligently written." The Bookseller
"the sort of book to wow reluctant boy readers away from computer games and into the pages of a book." Books for Keeps
"Joe Craig has produced another thrilling page-turner." Jewish Chronicle
"A rollicking good spy romp." School House magazine.
