About Brandon Robshaw
I have published 21 children’s novels and over 60 educational books. My most recent children’s novel, The Big Wish, was published by Chicken House on 2nd April 2015. It was shortlisted for the James Reckitt Hull Children’s Book Award 2016. I am a free lance journalist and used to be a regular book reviewer for the Independent on Sunday. I lecture in Creative Writing, Children’s Literature, and Philosophy for the Open University, and Writing for Children for Westminster University; I have a degree in English Literature and an MA in Philosophy, and am currently studying for a PhD in Philosophy with the Open University. I enjoy running; I play the ukulele a little bit and the piano an even littler bit. I live in Walthamstow, East London, with my wife, three children and dog. My age would be thought of by classicists as five lustra. My agent is Joanna Devereux, and her website is: http://www.joannadevereux.com
My family and I were the subjects of the BBC television programme, Back in Time for Dinner, a 6-part series about the history of food in Britain from the 1950s to the present-day. The series ran from 17th March to 21 April 2015 on BBC2. The follow-up series, Back in Time for Christmas, went out in December 2015. In the summer of 2016 we recorded another 6-part series for BBC2, Further Back in Time for Dinner, which began on 24 January 2017.
I am currently crowdfunding a YA novel, The Infinite Powers of Adam Gowers, with Unbound. Click to find out more: https://unbound.com/books/adam-gowers
