COLLINS BIG CAT, BEAST QUEST, DINOSAUR CLUB, RISING STARS
WE ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED FOR WORLD BOOK WEEK.
We are a writing partnership who write children’s books for nursery, reception, KS1 and KS2.
We were already friends when we discovered that we both wanted to write for children and that it was much more fun to do it together. In between the cups of tea and gossip we have managed to produce over 200 stories, including some poems and a play.
Our books are wide-ranging and include stories about a world of living dinosaurs, ghosts, football, ghosts playing football, a Tudor girl detective, a Tudor boy spy, pirates and pets from space! We also write for Oxford Reading Tree, Project X, OUP Read Write Inc, Collins Big Cat, Fiction Express and Rising Stars.
One of the best moments in our career was when a boy told us that he didn't like reading until he read 'First Blood'. Now he's hooked!

Thank you so much for such an entertaining session. I could see the children's faces and the messages in the chat box suggesting they were completely enthralled!! Ringshall Primary KS2 Google Classroom
Thank you for making our session so alive and exciting for our children! Year 1 Howard School Google Classroom
A huge thank you for this morning. I have had nothing but fantastic feedback from all the teachers and children, ranging from how well the children were engaged to how the session was pitched perfectly to the level of the children. East Ward Primary School, Microsoft Teams Session
We had a real treat in Year 5 today! The authors of our class novel, Spy Master, joined us on a zoom call. Jan and Sara gave us plenty of tips for writing and even gave us a sneak peak of one of their newer books! Strike Lane Primary
A really useful talk that gave the children lots of ideas and tips. I have referred back to Jan and Sara's advice in all of our English lessons this week. "Remember what Jan and Sara told us". Jan and Sara gave us exactly what I wanted out of the talk and more. They were friendly, engaging, keeping their answers to a perfect length and worded so that the children could understand. I would definitely recommend.
Ladies, you were both absolutely amazing and inspiring. Children loved the workshops and Assembly. When they went back to the classrooms could not wait to start writing. Absolutely fantastic! Thank you very much for coming to Laindon Park and sharing your magic with us! Cristina Portoles-Headteacher
Rodmersham School have loved our Team session with the authors, Jan and Sara today. The children loved asking questions about the books and their lives as authors and we have enjoyed watching the children engage in the literacy and knowledge of the authors books. Very much enjoyed by us all, they both were an inspiration to all the children. Thank you, Burchett and Vogler!!
