Hello. I'm James Campbell.
I decided to be a writer when I was seven.
When I was twenty-one I did a bit of voluntary work in a primary school in Cambridgeshire. I then started travelling to primary schools telling my stories.
Over the next few years the stories got more tangential and funnier. Eventually, other people told me that I was a stand-up comedian. I believed them and started doing that too.
Over a number of years, many schools, theatres, libraries and comedy clubs, comedy mingled with storytelling; poetry mixed with anecdotes; and eventually something called Comedy 4 Kids
These days, I spend most weekends in a theatre somewhere, doing my one man show. It's for children over six and their families. I talk about funny things in a funny way that children seem to like.
In the week, I travel around primary schools, telling stories and encouraging children to write their own stuff.
The rest of the time I mumble to myself in the woods.
Occasionally I host a new online TV show called The Big Book Babble.
I've tried to put some good things on this site. If there's anything you'd like to see but isn't here, just ask me. It's probably under my desk.
I'm very happy. Try it.

I've just been offered a rather nice book deal with Hodder for a series of books I have written called Boyface.
More news will follow but in the meantime, we have set up a little Facebook page
for the main character. That way you can find out more and I can tell you more when we know it.
His name is Boyface Antelope. Go and look for him and befriend him and that sort of thing.
If you're a twittery type person you can follow him @Stripemonger
You know what to do!
