Robbie Blackhurst is an inspiring businessman turned author, who takes young readers on a journey of adventure and discovery. Robbie was inspired by his 5-year-old son, George, to write his first children’s book ‘Silent George’. George was fearful of starting school due to his speech and language difficulties and through Silent George, George felt understood and not so alone.


Aiming to address the challenges children face in a noisy and complex world, Robbie aims to create a safe space for children who may be nervous about embarking on new milestones in their lives. 


Writing from his home in Cheshire, Robbie lives with his wife, children and playful poodle, Buddy. After the success and positivity surrounding Robbie’s debut book, Robbie is currently working on the next within the Silent George series and hopes these books will offer comfort to children and inspire other families who have faced similar challenges.
