At Milton Park Primary we are very excited to be welcoming David Lawrence Jones to meet with our children. He will be visiting the children on Tuesday 20th January and will be signing books on Thursday 22nd January.
We have made a link to his webiste under his photo.
David was born in 1964 in a mining village called Ravenfield, near Rotherham in South Yorkshire. Following a career of varied professional roles, he is now the writer of children’s books.
Over the past fifteen years he has produced many stories to capture the imagination of children. His first novel was published in 2009 and he is well renowned for the popular Bradley Baker adventures.
David is very excited and thrilled to have created a new picture book series called Jig & Saw about two adopted jigsaw pieces. Many stories are planned full of adventure when the characters discover “What’s in store behind the cupboard door!”
The author now resides in the picturesque seaside town of Torquay in Devon with his wife and two youngest children. He continues to write from his study at home and visits as many primary schools as possible throughout the UK to share his love of literacy. As a child, he was a reluctant reader and he hones his author visits to create a real buzz around reading and writing… and so far no one has been disappointed by his infectious enthusiasm of the written word!
David is proud to support two very worthwhile causes based in the South West. He is a patron of Families for Children Adoption based at Buckfast Abbey and the chancellor for Torbay’s Children’s University based at Plymouth University.
