A visit from Josh Lacey...

"The day was exciting. It was so cool to have an author in school. I bought his book and I can't put it down, it's great. I was really inspired by him."
 
"All the children (and parents) had a fabulous time meeting you and I was very impressed with the questions they asked you - all very appropriate and you answered them beautifully."
 
"Thank you so much for a brilliant visit yesterday. The children were so inspired and to hear an author reading his own words was just amazing."
 
I regularly visit schools to talk about my books and see these visits as an integral part of my work as a writer. I enjoy meeting readers, inspiring new generations of writers and working with young people on developing their own creativity.

I've prepared a short document with some more information about my books and what I will do during an event. Please email me and I'll send it to you.
