Peter J Murray is an award-winning Children's author. In the last ten years Peter has penned the renowned Mokee Joe series, the popular Bonebreaker Trilogy and the seriously spooky Victorian-themed Scabbajack. He has won the Stockton Children’s Book Award, the Sheffield Children’s Book Award and the Bedfordshire Children’s Book of the Year.
With more than 12 books under his belt Peter and his wife Kath visit more than 100 schools a year, sharing their enthusiasm for spooky story writing with children around the world. Peter's interactive presentations inspire children to read and to pick up their own pen and let their imaginations run loose creating their own literary masterpieces.
The interactive nature of the presentations engage the children and teachers alike, with in-character dressing up, tales from around the globe such as those about Peter's visit to the scare capital of the world - Louisiana, and interesting, illustrated introductions to story-telling and creative writing tools used by real authors.
