Joe Craig is a novelist, screenwriter, songwriter and performer. 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).
