R.A. Powell is a children's author who loves nothing more than writing family adventure stories with memorable characters and multiple layers to the narrative.
Based in Hertfordshire, R.A. Powell still has a day job and writes his books on his smartphone during his daily commute into London. His writing influences are a mixture of Roald Dahl, Carolyn Keene & CJ Sansom along with other passions and experiences in his life; music, volunteering, politics, running marathons; all with a heavy dose of references to classic 80's and 90's films and his favourite bands.
R.A Powell was formerly lead singer of Cinemawave (available on Spotify) and is a super proud husband to his wife and head-over-heels-in-love (and knackered) father to his son and two daughters.
Odd Socks was a finalist in The People's Book Prize 2019.
