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. 2018 will see the publication of two new books and having written the script and lyrics of a stage musical I’m hoping it may be performed this year. 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 page, 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
