This is me – Justin Davies, Children’s Author.

Before I decided to write books, I tried my hand at being a cowboy, a superhero and whatever that other one is.

When I finally grew out of my super-cool superhero Batman outfit, I got myself a job – but not as a superhero. Can you guess what my job was?

As a flight attendant I flew all over the world, but I’ve now hung up my wings and spend my days letting my imagination fly instead as I write my stories. This is another dream job! I am very lucky.

When I’m not writing, I do silly things with my husband, Andrew. Like finding empty beaches to jump on:

The third member of our family is Sally, a rescue greyhound.

Some Fun Facts about me:

  • I speak lots of languages: French, German, Spanish, and even English.
  • I live near Edinburgh, in Scotland, which isn’t nearly as cold as people think it is. (Although I have a large number of winter woollies to wear…just in case.)
  • I bake very tasty scones. If you ever come for tea, we’ll have some.
  • I used to be a gymnast. I expect you were already thinking that from the pictures.
  • I have played several characters in pantomimes, including Wishee Washee in Aladdin, and the back end of a cow in Jack and the Beanstalk.
