About Penzance Press
Welcome to Penzance Press.
Penzance Press is a small family business based around the writing and illustrations of Martyn Harvey, who was born in Plymouth and grew up in Penzance.
Our mission is to bring the whacky, zaniness of Martyn's poetry and children's stories to a wider - eventually worldwide - audience!
With several decades of experience in Technical Writing, Marketing, Programming and Web Design - as well as the fact that "The Team" (Martyn Harvey and Sarah Freer) have raised 5 children between them (ages 8, 14, 17, 18 and 21!) - we have all the skills (and parenting expertise!) needed to successfully perform the role of a traditional small Children's Book publisher. "So..." (we thought)... why not Do it Ourselves?...
...and that's what we're doing... writing and producing funny books for kids!
Keep in touch!
