Author: Harry Oulton

Harry is currently in the third year of his creative writing PhD. His YA novel takes elements from 15th century letters, a Robert Louis Stevenson novel from the 19th century and a family biography from 2004 and fuses them to create a piece of original fiction. This adaptive approach is a way of exploring the methodology of adaptation and transmediation as it applies to Children’s Literature. Before doing his MA at Goldsmiths Harry worked at the BBC and Granada TV for many years, including stints as a script editor, drama producer and ultimately executive producer of the BAFTA nominated The Great Train Robbery. He has published three middle grade children’s novels, a book of writers prompts, articles on adaptation and written three award winning short films. He lives in London with his wife and children.
