Hi, I'm Geoff Swift, an Author from Scotland.

I am the author of 'The Zak and Rory' series, 'The Witch, The Cat and Jack' a trilogy of Witch stories and a coloring book. Also 'Brian The Beetroot's Haircut' and 'Max The Rabbit's Close Encounters' books. Which is a series of young reader books with an environmental element.

I enjoy the outdoors and travelling. I am a keen walker, skier and golfer when not writing. I have given primary school talks, and love the engagement, feedback and questions the young learners give. Listening and engaging with the young learners, I am impressed with their approach to learning and the environment.

As the future of the world is in their hands, the future looks good.

I am currently working on 'Tommy The Mouse's Nighttime Adventures'
