Antony Wootten has been a primary school teacher for 19 years. He was born in Berkshire in 1971. He has taught in a number of different schools, including several in London and one in Canada. He now lives in a tiny North Yorkshire village near Whitby, and runs a writers' group which meets every fortnight to share ideas and listen to each other's work.
Antony has written three books for children: two novels and a collection of limericks. He loves writing about characters who face up to adversity and danger, and so his novels are moving and dramatic, often tackling emotive issues from real life, head-on. His limericks, however, are completely the opposite - they are funny, and very silly!
Antony writes for adults using the pen-name David Hall. He has recently published a collection of short stories for adults, which is called 'And I Wish I'd Asked Why'. It's currently available on Kindle only, but there are plans to publish it in paperback in the coming months.
