Josh Lacey worked as a journalist, a screenwriter and a teacher before publishing his first novel. He is now a regular contributor to The Guardian.
He also writes under the name Joshua Doder, and his Grk novels have been received with acclaim; A Dog Called Grk was shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award as well as many regional prizes, while Grk and the Pelotti Gang was shortlisted for the 2006 Blue Peter Book Awards in the ‘Book I Couldn't Put Down’ category.
Josh introduces his books, and always reads aloud from at least one of his books. He talks about his ideas and inspirations and why and very importantly how he writes. Josh's presentations engage his audience and he always finds that encouraging questions from the audience stirs up interesting discussion topics.
