"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.

Ten short funny books for younger children, illustrated throughout by Garry Parsons.
The Grk books
A series of eight adventure stories set in different countries around the world.
The Island of Thieves
"Funny and action packed, this well-paced, smartly written crime caper is just the thing for boys of 8+. Uncle Harvey is a wonderful comic creation; more, please." The Times
My novel Bearkeeper would a very useful resource if you’re studying Shakespeare. I'm happy to come to schools and talk about the inspiration behind the book: Shakespeare's life and works - especially Hamlet - and ordinary life in 1601.
“This is a highly enjoyable read that firmly hooks into the turn of the 17th century, triggers interest in Shakespeare's plays and makes you pause to think about cruelties humans inflict on animals, now as well as then.” The Guardian

Hope Jones’ New Year’s resolution is to give up plastic, and she’s inspiring others to do the same with her website hopejonessavestheworld.com. When she realises her local supermarket seems to stock more unnecessary plastic than food, she makes it her mission to do something about it. She may be just one ten-year-old with a homemade banner, but with enough determination, maybe Hope Jones really can save the world.
