Luke Temple was born in 1988. When he was 10, Luke didn't enjoy reading, he was terrible at spelling and found writing hard work. Yet today he's an author, and he's on a mission to show children that they can enjoy reading and writing. When not behind his desk with his writing partners, a one eyed dog and a bald hamster, Luke spends most of his time visiting schools in the UK and internationally, bringing his stories to life with the children he meets.
"Just wanted to congratulate Mr Temple on his wonderful book 'The Secret Theatre'. My daughter has never shown such enthusiasm and sheer excitement whilst reading a book. She even goes to bed early so she can read it! Many thanks and how wonderful that an author can inspire such excitement and joy through his writing." A parent
"Luke Temple is so talented... 'Stormy Cliff' is exciting and spooky" Waterstone's
"Thank you for inspiring our son. These are the first 'real' books that he has read. His reading has gone from 15 minute sessions to up to 2 hour sessions! He loves reading now." A parent
"My little girl says this is the best book she has ever read... it shows how gripping the story is. As she has nearly finished it, in bed as I write, I was ordered to buy anything I could find by him on Amazon!! Please write some more." A parent
"My son is a bit of a reluctant reader, so I was quite surprised when he came home from school yesterday telling me that an author had been in and please, please, please could I buy these books... He immediately sat down and started reading 'Stormy Cliff'. Please would you thank Luke so much for inspiring him." A parent
