We are delighted that the competition this year was judged by Mr James Hartley, author of Cold Fire “the second in the Shakespeare´s Moon series based on Romeo and Juliet”. Many thanks to James for his adjudication and wonderful feedback to all those who took part.
James Hartley was born on the Wirral in 1973. He has lived in Singapore, Oman, Scotland and France but now lives and works in Madrid, Spain, with his wife and two children. The Shakespeare´s Moon series of books are aimed at giving young teenager readers a fresh route into the plays. The books are stocked at the Globe and National theatres and are supported by writers such as Charles Nichols and actors like Christopher Ecclestone. James works closely with Shakespeare´s Schoolroom in Stratford-Upon- Avon, where Shakespeare went to school. James loves to hear from teachers, educators and young readers and writers and you can read more about the books and contact him here: http://www.jameshartleybooks.com/the-shakespeares-moon-books/
