We are Contact an Author

Quite simply, we want to help authors inspire people. We feel the world is a better place when everyone can enjoy reading and engage face-to-face with an author. Our mission is to celebrate authors and help arrange as many author visits as possible.

Contact an Author was founded in 2006 by Diana and Steve Kimpton. Diana is a successful children's author with more than 40 books published so far. They created Contact an Author after discovering a need for organisations, such as schools, to find and book authors.

Diana and Steve retired in 2017, with Joe and Aya - book-loving geeks - now running Contact an Author. We are inspired by Diana and Steve's creation and proud of the thousands of author-visits made possible by our website. We want to continue their work and will be developing the website and our services further.
