THE author behind the Jimmy Coates action and adventure series is set to visit Pershore High School.

Joe Craig, who has penned a number of novels, will be visiting the school on Tuesday, February 4, to sign copies of his books for students.

The 32-year-old will also be doing a presentation to the school.

He is best known for the Jimmy Coates series of books, which is described in several reviews as the Bourne Identity for kids.

As well as being an author he is also a songwriter and musician performing at various venues in London, and who has made a self-produced CD of his pop material.

Clive Corbett, headteacher at Pershore High School, said he was delighted that Joe Craig would be visiting them.
