Meet John Priest, Author of Animal Alphabet Search and other stories
JP: I was born in the West Midlands, UK. I've been writing since the 80's.
My first children's book 'Naughty Nigel Runs Away' was written to warn children of 'stranger danger' and what to do if they were separated from their parents.
It was a popular book in schools throughout the UK and in other countries around the world. I decided a couple of years ago to concentrate on my writing again - I have three grandkids with two more on the way, so need to write more books to keep them happy!
JP: Animal Alphabet Search is a book I'd thought about many years ago and after looking for suitable drawing and illustration software, I was finally able to complete and publish it.
BBB: What other books have you written?
JP: Some of my books were published traditionally - Naughty Nigel Runs Away, Tom's Birthday Treat and Answer the Phone Fiona!
My other books have all been indie published, such as my whodunit detective series featuring the Junior Private Investigators aka Jay-Pea-Eyes.
Little Miss Straight Tail is for baby up to 5 years and is about a pig born with a straight tail. Will it ever go curly? You'll have to read the book to find out!
Peter Challenge - Time Surfer. This first book in the series is a mixture of magic, sword and sorcery for kids reading 'starter chapter' books.
JP: I'm just finishing a couple of books, one about a dinosaur who jumps right out of a kid's painting book, the other is a story about a child visiting hospital and what to expect from doctors, nurses, etc.
BBB: How can readers discover more about you and your books?
JP: I have been advertising for people to join my readers team/pre-launch team. They can contact me through my website www.johnpriest.co.uk and will not only get first looks at my new stories but will receive free books too. I'm hoping that I can get feedback from the readers that will make my books even better.
I am always available, please just drop me a line and I will answer.
