Information about the Children's Author ~ Damian Harvey

Hi, this is me when I was a baby.

I was born on April 3rd 1967...
This was 2 years before Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldren walked on The Moon...

The first stories I wrote were horror stories - and they were pretty horrible too... but not very good.

...and about 1,924 years after the Romans invaded Britain.
"Who would have thought this hairstyle would become popular with football players over 30 years later?"

By the time I was three years old I had learnt to drive and was working part time as a chauffeur…alright, alright… it was my Dad's car.

If your class is doing an author profile about me (instead of Roald Dahl) and you would like pictures, further information or would like to do an email interview - please feel free to get in touch and I'll help as much as I can.

And just to prove that not everything was black and white in those days, here is a picture of me in colour.

Some writers start writing stories from an early age, but I was happy to play with lego, toy cars and a strange machine that made animal noises.

This is me playing the guitar when I was about 15. I should have stuck with the animal noise machine instead - it was easier to play and sounded much better.

For a long time I wanted to be a radio presenter or a disc jockey, so I went to university and took a degree in Communication Studies.

It was during my time at university that I started writing stories and really decided that I was going to be a writer.

I still enjoy messing around with a guitar... This is the guitar my wife, Vicky bought me for Christmas....

Now I live in Wales with Vicky, my gorgeous wife. She loves sharing stories as much as I do and spends lots of time telling stories to Nursery Children in libraries...

People keep asking me to add a page of photographs from our wedding.. so here it is... Click HERE

Here's some of the people in our life... three wonderful daughters (Rachel, Laura and Deanna) and one brilliant son (Connor).
Here's Rachel receiving an award for her work in Univeristy Radio...

Vicky and I love sharing stories and reading books.
