Jay White had always wanted to be a writer. He wrote his first story when he was five and sent it in
to a competition – it won! After he had won the competition he started writing every day. His first
book was published in 1979 when he was only 12. “I’d been writing for seven years but I was still
really excited when my first book came out.”
Since then he has written more than thirty books. Last year he entered another competition. He
chose to enter a book he had written when he was only nine. Why did he choose this particular
book? “I’d been thinking about this story for a long time. Although I was only nine when I wrote it
I thought it was one of the best stories I had ever created.”

2 Jay White had always wanted to be a writer. He wrote his first story when he was five and sent it in
to a competition – it won! After he had won the competition he started writing every day. His first
book was published in 1979 when he was only 12. “I’d been writing for seven years but I was still
really excited when my first book came out.”
Since then he has written more than thirty books. Last year he entered another competition. He
chose to enter a book he had written when he was only nine. Why did he choose this particular
book? “I’d been thinking about this story for a long time. Although I was only nine when I wrote it
I thought it was one of the best stories I had ever created.”
We all wish Jay the best of luck in the competition.
