About the Author
Wallace Briggs was born into an underprivileged family that consisted of four children, a sick father (who died when Wallace was seventeen), and a mother who worked hard to nurture and provide. Wallace first met Pat when they were eleven years old, only to be separated a year later when Wallace's family moved away. But the paths of Wallace and Pat crossed again, and when they reached adulthood, they married--and marriage that has lasted nearly 60 years.
Jimmy Crikey was born one rainy day, many years ago, during a family holiday in Great Yarmouth, to entertain Wallace and Pat's son and his friends. The story expanded over the following damp afternoons in the cramped confines of a beach tent, as more and more adventures were required to keep the children entertained. Many years later, Wallace decided to commit to the written word, and now looks forward to sharing The Adventures of Jimmy Crikey with a wider audience.
