Chris Callaghan

Chris Callaghan is a Children’s Author with a background as a mechanic in the Royal Air Force and as an Environmental Scientist. Growing up in a shipyard town on the banks of the Tyne, he saw this industry decline and the effects it had on the people, town and schools. He struggled with reading as a boy, and preferred writing stories, never dreaming that one day he might become a published author himself. But he did!
He has spent the previous few years visiting schools around the UK, often in deprived areas, talking of his love of reading and writing, and encouraging children, just like he was, that stories are for everyone.

Chris Callaghan is an Award-Winning and Amazon No.1 Best Selling Children’s Author who always found time to scribble silly stories ! Chris is very happy to interact on Twitter & Instagram @callaghansstuff or find out more about his work on at
