Now that he has written a couple of books he is contacting Police forces up and down the country to try and make the second part of his childhood dream come true. Criminals, rapscallions, and naughty crocodiles beware. A shy and quiet man, Harry lives and writes on the edge of a magical forest where he spends any spare time that he has collecting pine cones and volunteering at his local monkey prison.
