About the Author:
Chris J Smith has worked as a teacher for some time now but always enjoyed his chances to encourage creative writing by his pupils, either in class or in a Writers Club setting. He has been a keen informal writer for some time. He wrote his own adventure stories as a youngster before schoolwork and exams got in the way, even being noticed by the local press. He contributed sections to The Goons: The Story (Virgin Books, 1997) whilst editing a Goon Show magazine – something that inevitably influenced this most recent writing project.
About the Illustrator:
Glenn Mitchell is best known as a writer, variously of film comedy reference books, radio documentaries (which he also presents) and comedy scripts. During his lengthy tenure as sketch writer for BBC Radio 2’s The News Huddlines, he became the show’s resident cartoonist, producing drawings for the programme’s website and for special occasions such as prizes for listener competitions. Glenn is presently working on a graphic novel, alternating this work with the illustrations for Bright Spark.
