I love visiting schools, meeting readers, sharing ideas and talking books – for me it’s one of the best parts of being an author.
I offer Talks for Years 6 to 9 focused on My Second Life and a Talk on What I Couldn’t Tell You aimed at Year 9 and above. I can also offer a combined Talk covering both books. All Talks will fill an hour’s slot in the timetable and include a reading and a Q&A. I can also offer a shorter Talk, in an assembly slot for example, followed by a Workshop to a smaller group of students, if preferred.
My Workshops are for up to 30 students and are focused on creating a character. Students will come away from the Workshop with a character and a basic story outline that can then be further developed following on from the session. In addition to this I offer a Workshop for Year 11 students on how to get inspired to write creatively from an image, which links into the current English GCSE curriculum.

Please do get in touch with me in the first instance using the contact form below if you’d like to find out more. I can be flexible within timetables and I am also happy to advise on my work and which year groups are a good fit for which books.
