Hello and thank you for visiting my website.

If you’d like some brief background information, here it is.

After a career in the BBC I left in order to concentrate on writing and running training courses in aspects of television production.

My writing has been mainly for children, with over forty published books, many of them selling worldwide. I’ve also written for television and the stage and produced and directed for television. Last year saw the publication of two new books and this year I’ve been commissioned to write a further three books in The Animals’ Caravan series as well as two books for Lion Hudson in a new series, called What is….?, which will explore different elements of faith through a fictional family.  I’m still trying to get a production of the stage musical I’ve written with Penny Weedon, Tales from the Ark – the musical, performed.  Watch this space!

I’ve been married to Chris, the most wonderful man in the world, for over forty years and we live in a small and friendly village in the Midlands. Among my hobbies are the theatre, reading, poetry, walking, steam railways, playing the keyboard, not very expertly, taking photographs  – you’ll see some of them on this website, organising a candlelit carol service in our village church as well as film shows and other activities – oh, and there’s our legendary Christmas tree…..

I’d really like your thoughts, comments and questions, so look around and enjoy!

Avril Rowlands
