RICHARD HEDDINGTON is a Children’s Author and Photographer based in Devon in the South West of England. He has swum with sharks, great whales and friendly dolphins, although they weren’t very close. In fact, he was in the sea at Lyme Regis, but they were there somewhere.

He is widely travelled, and each year covers a similar distance to that of Michael Palin, usually about 584 million miles. If you need to contact him, now is a good time because in six months time he expects to be on the other side of the sun.

Richard Heddington as GingerThis year he is celebrating his 98th birthday and 40 years as a top selling author. He is neither 98 nor a top selling author (yet), but feels that if he waits until he is, he will be too old to appreciate it.

He is currently grappling with the concept of writing in the third person.
