The Joe Craig Show

Joe Craig

Every ‘Joe Craig Show’ is different,  This one will included the World Premiere of his 5th thriller, Jimmy Coates: Survival.

At 27, Joe Craig is already bracketed alongside Horowitz and Higson as one of "the best spy kids authors… outstanding at both writing and plotting" (Times). A former songwriter, he is now best known for his award-winning Jimmy Coates series.
