Hello, we're Steve and Diana Kimpton - the people behind this site.
We created this site and www.wordpool.co.uk to increase the online profile of British children's books. As a result, we started building sites for other authors and we now also run contactanauthor.co.uk and helpwithpublishing.com.
Diana is a children's author with more than 25 books published so far and several more in the pipeline. It's that background which triggered our enthusiasm for the children's book world which we've found to be full of delightful real life people as well as imaginary dragons, schoolboy wizards and talking teddy bears.
Steve is the technical half of the partnership. His many years experience in the computer industry have given him a confidence and expertise which is invaluable in tackling web based projects. He's also particularly good at explaining technical stuff in words even the most computer illiterate can understand.
Together we make a good team whose different skills combine well. We also enjoy what we are doing and love doing it together. We hope you get as much pleasure out of visiting our sites as we do from building them.
