George Gilchrist was born on Tyneside and now lives in in a small village in the Scottish Borders with his wife Susan. Having retired as a headteacher in 2017, he has used his new freedom and space to develop his passion for writing. He has published two books about school leadership and professional learning, and also contributed chapters to others. George has his own blog and has written numerous articles for professional magazines and blogs.
George has used his background in education to help shape and inform his fictional writing, and his book ‘I’m Not Different, You Are!’ is his first story written for younger readers. He understands the importance of reading to all areas of learning, and seeks to promote a love of reading, as well as critical thinking in his readers, young and old.
