Writer, illustrator

Roland Chambers

My children’s novel, Nelly and the Quest for Captain Peabody, now has a sequel: Nelly and the Flight of the Sky Lantern.

I’m also the author of The Last Englishman – a biography of Arthur Ransome – which won a Jerwood award from the Royal Society of Literature and the WH Fisher prize. My illustrations have appeared in The New Yorker, and my writing in the Guardian, the Times, and the Sunday Times.

For the last few years I’ve been working with the charity First Story.
