Dixon Burns


Dixon Burns (Pen name) was born and brought up (or was it dragged up) in West Yorkshire, England. He worked in Textiles, the Mining Industry and is trained as a qualified Social Worker. He is married with a daughter.

His writing credits so far are two published childrens stories on Amazon - Amy Pleb. This is a trilogy of stories, which are The Big Storm, The Tall Tower and Amy's Week of Disasters. And Amy Pleb and The Secret Tree.

Dixon has been writing since the early 80's, and his work includes songs and short stories. But he claims that he often started writing these but rarely finished them. But when he got the idea for Amy Pleb, the inspiration came flooding in. He was prompted into writing a Children's story from a suggestion by his wife and Amy is inspired by his daughter.

Please read his Word from the Author at the beginning of Amy Pleb, which is a rather
amusing read.

He has written two more Stories again about Amy and they will be on sale next year. They are titled Amy Pleb and all the Ghosts and the Ghostsquel. He is currently writing a sequel to the Secret Tree and ideas for more stories about Amy are in the pipe line. Or that untidy mess he calls his brain.

The art work for the current book has been done by Dixon himself and as he points out as an artist he makes a fine Jockey. The Week of Disasters front cover was designed by his daughter. Lesson learnt the illustration for the Secret Tree were done by Jade Hodgson.

Dixon also maintains that not a word would have been written without the support, hard work, dedication and love from his family.
