Andrew Norriss was teaching A level history when a visit to a hypnotherapist resulted in him not only giving up smoking but also becoming a full time writer. He won the Whitbread (now Costa) Children's Book Award with Aquila, which he adapted for television, a series which along with Bernard's Watch, Matt's Million and Woof! is remembered with great affection.

His latest book Jessica's Ghost is published by David Fickling Books and may be his best yet... The American edition will be published by Scholastic/David Fickling with the title 'Friends for Life'.

Andrew believes that there is nothing better than a good story, and most importantly that reading is fun! For info, reviews & teaching resources go to

Other television credits include The Brittas Empire, and Chance in a Million starring Simon Callow and Brenda Blethyn.

Andrew Norriss lives in a village in Hampshire with his wife Jane.
