Hurrahs for Wanstead author

Wanstead author Joseph Elliott is celebrating the publication of his second novel, the sequel to The Good Hawk which was published last year to great critical acclaim (including being called ‘thrilling’ by the New York Times and being nominated for the Carnegie medal).

The Broken Raven is the second part of an epic fantasy trilogy which has been compared to Game of Thrones and which has a protagonist with Down’s Syndrome. It’s pitched at young teenagers.

Joseph has lived in Wanstead for the past four years, and is well known to a generation of children through his acting and writing for comedy and children’s television. He is best known for playing pirate Cook in the CBeebies series Swashbuckle.

Congratulations to Joseph – and fingers crossed that if there is a Wanstead Fringe this year, it will be possible to arrange an event with him.

You can buy copies of both of Joseph’s books from Wanstead Bookshop below.
