Author Visit from James Campbell

17th January 2019
Today we had a visit from James Campbell. He performs his comedy for children shows all over the place and visits many many primary schools with his unique blend of storytelling, talking about writing and being properly hilarious. He has books published by Hodder and Bloomsbury. James lives in Suffolk with his wife, many children, dog and chickens. He is six foot and one inch tall and enjoys writing about himself in the third person.
 

James began writing the sorts of stories that he was reading, usually magical stories with portals. Then he became obsessed with Star Wars until he was about ten when he discovered war stories and other things that were too old for him. As a teenager he did the usual teenage things but wrote terrible poems while he was doing them and then at the age of 19 he won a playwriting festival and set about being a proper writer.

At weekends and in holiday times James has performed his Comedy 4 Kids show all over the world.
