James Wright, 29, was a former pupil at North Walsham High School and Paston College, and his first novel, Hopebearer, was released earlier this month.

Mr Wright said: 'I've always loved to read, and from as far back as I can remember it's been my ambition to write a novel.

'I wrote Hopebearer primarily for a teen audience, but I hope that lots of older people who are young at heart and who are after a bit of escapism will enjoy it too.

'This is a huge personal achievement and I hope residents of my home county will have as much fun reading it as I've had writing it.'
