The hairy writer in question is Andy Charman. I’ve been teaching in the UK as a primary school teacher for the last 17 years; before that I was in publishing. When I was in publishing I wrote a number of non-fiction books for children and since then I have been – during the holidays – writing fiction.

In this blog – when I get the hang of it – I hope to¬†write about children’s fiction and how it can be used in teaching; promote my new novel which will soon go to Kindle; and indulge myself in talking about wildflowers, painting, the countryside, and other things that interest me.
