Most Children's books are created by adults..... but not any more! J W B Rowley is 9 years old, and decided he wanted to be an author 4 years ago.  He's tirelessly worked on his first book (often way past bedtime🧸) and it's just been released.
J is Nicola's son, and seeing Mum live her dreams from an early age inspired him to do the same.
