Writing Journey

Hello everyone, welcome to my website. I’m Joe Richardson. I live just outside Belfast with my wife, baby son and miniature schnauzer.

I’ve been teaching in primary schools now for over a decade.  It has been the children who have inspired and motivated me to write my novels. I love the enthusiasm the children display when a book sparks their imagination and grabs their interest. I am forever chatting with my pupils about their current reads, and I was eager that someday it would be my own book we’d be discussing. And so here we are.

Best writing advice I have received:

‘To become a great writer, begin by becoming a great reader.’

**The Animal in Amy is now an award winning series.

A winner in The Wishing Shelf Book Awards 2023**

The amazing and very talented Roisin Bradley successfully brought ‘The Animal in Amy’ visually to life.
