After more than fifteen years as a primary school teacher in Haringey and Barnet, Antony finally swapped the company of a room full of children for his PC and a vat full of coffee. Ironically he now spends practically as many days in schools as he would as a teacher and manages to visit over one hundred and fifty a year.
He is the author of both picture books and junior novels and has written for both trade and educational lists. Recently he has written titles for both Pearson Education and Nelson Thornes. In 2014 he published his historical novel, Stars, set in Warsaw during the time of the Nazi occupation in WWII.
Antony grew up in North London. He is married with three children.
