ABOUT US

We have written more than 200 books. Many are for children, but we write for all ages. Other people have said we are friendly, adaptable, accurate and encyclopaedic... which is nice. We try
to stay professional and unflappable.

With so much content and information streaming around us, our aims are always accuracy, objectivity and clarity.
To explain and entertain. To stimulate imaginations.
To make sure finding out really is fun.

 

All readers and content users deserve the best. The best gives added value.

All work now appears under the Williams names, but we
are also published as Brenda Clarke, Tom Stacy and
Leon Ashworth.

We support the Society of Authors and NIBWEB.

 

We are based in East Sussex, UK.

 

Do contact us if you would like to know more about us or if you have any projects that you would like to discuss.
