Bringing Worlds to Life: Jamie Smith and Malorie Blackman

Brilliant news this week as Bright are proud to announce that our fantastic artist, Jamie Smith has been signed-up to work with Malorie Blackman on her new titles as Children’s Laureate.

Malorie has been awarded numerous awards for her work,  including the Red House Children’s Book Award and the Fantastic Fiction Award. She’s written over fifty books and is one of today’s most imaginative and convincing writers for young readers.

Seamlessly blending with Malorie, Jamie’s work brings a playful approach to Malorie’s reality. It is an exciting time for Jamie, and Bright are delighted to be working with such an exciting modern author.


Agent Lucie worked with Jamie to secure this amazing deal and she shared the exciting news with the team today.

‘Jamie is a joy to work with, and we are so happy for him. We worked together to create a very exciting portfolio, and we expect a lot more to come. Who better for Jamie to work with than the talented storyteller, Malorie Blackman!’
