James Steptowe - children's author

I am a children’s book author originally from Essex, but now living in Italy as my wife (who is Italian) and I await our first child. In May 2019 I published my debut book: “Raid of the Ratskull Rodents”, a book full of mystery and adventures – aimed at children aged between 7 and 11.
In 2020 I will be publishing “Chase for the Championship”, a football story for girls and boys aged 7-11.

 

I will still be returning to the UK regularly and may move back permanently, but currently am not able to offer author visits in person. 

I am however readily available for Skype sessions and am happy to talk to schools or classes about my top tips for writing and publishing a book. Please feel free to email me at hello@jamessteptowe.com and please subscribe to my mailing list to hear about all my updates and when I will be returning to the UK:  http://eepurl.com/gzNjxr 

Also, please download and read for free the first chapter of 'Raid of the Ratskull Rodents' from: https://jamessteptowebooks.files.wordpress.com/2019/09/chapters-1-only-free-sample-1.pdf

Or listen to me read it (with a little help from my cat): Reading of Chapter 1 of Raid of the Ratskull Rodents

Previous UK Visits

"The author visit has inspired children to read more for pleasure and has shown them the process of writing which was beneficial for them to apply to their writing."
