Blog Tour: John Priest, Author of The Curse of the Sea Shell Cave

Author Pic
I've been a children's author since 1985, with books traditionally and independently published.
I am one of seven children (three girls, four boys) and live with my wife and family in the West Midlands, UK (two daughters, their hubbies and three great grandkids).
I have written many different types of books and scripts over the years and besides children's books I have written adult horror, sci-fi and comedy thriller scripts.
I was invited to Pinewood Studios, UK, in the late 1980's after a Director had read my script and thought it showed great promise.  He sent it to the USA for another reading but unfortunately nothing ever came of it. I keep meaning to change the script into book form but other new ideas always take over.
Book Cover
My latest children's book is The Curse of Sea Shell Cave, a detective/whodunit for children.  Inside you will find the Jay-Pea-Eyes aka Junior Private Investigators searching for clues to solve another mystery.  It's the second book in the JPIs series and is available in paperback and various e-book formats.

  3. Hi Nicholas, I just replied but it vanished into the ether somewhere! Thanks for your comment - I enjoyed looking around Pinewood Studios and seeing where some of my favourite films were made.
