About our Guest
Simon Farnaby has written and starred in some of the UK’s best-loved family TV shows such as Horrible Histories and Ghosts as well as the blockbuster films Paddington and Paddington 2. He has also appeared in the Sky TV series Yonderland and on the big screen he plays the part of Dutch stuntman in the spoof cult detective movie Mindhorn.
The Wizard in My Shed is his first children’s book and he is currently writing the sequel. Here you can read a kids’ review of The Wizard in My Shed.
When Simon is not writing or acting he can be found roaming Hampstead Heath with his dogs or cleaning-up guinea pig poo!
