I published my first textbook, English: Skill by Skill, in 1989. Not many people noticed it. It was a collection of vaguely wacky language activities designed to teach pupils the essential skills of English. That led to a number of projects, and to working with some great collaborators - Michael Marland and Roy Blatchford being the two who made the biggest impact on me.
Since then I've usually written three or four books a year, mostly working on them in snatched moments in holidays, early most mornings, late too many nights. A list of the various books I've been involved in is given below. Click on the heading that interests you.
