I have experience in school and library visits as well as radio interviews with regional BBC stations.
I am pleased to offer virtual and / or in-person visits which can include any of the following:
- Talk / presentation - can be for Key Stage 2 or full school assemblies
- A reading from one of my books (suitable for Key Stage 2)
- Creative writing workshops for Key Stage 2 students
“Both workshops were fully booked and received excellent feedback from attendees.”
Jenny Carter, Librarian
“Our pupils were hooked… every bookworm’s perfect day.”
Andrew Kilbride, Headteacher
Over the years I’ve lived and worked in London, Exeter, New York and Delaware and am now living close to where I grew up in Sevenoaks, Kent.
Reading has always been one of my favourite things to do; during reading hour at primary school I would become so absorbed in imaginary worlds that at the end my name would have to be called several times before I’d notice!
A good book becomes like an old friend, being revisited again and again. I hope to entertain young readers with adventures and laughs to enjoy alongside the characters.
The Adventurers Series was inspired by my childhood holidays to Devon and Cornwall as well as my lifelong fascination with Ancient Egypt.
I have written four books to date in The Adventurers Series: contemporary, humorous stories following a group of children and their Border collie as they solve mysteries everywhere from Cornwall to Cairo. The first two books of the series will be translated into Estonian and published by Eesti Raamat in 2021. I have also written a fiction book designed for students in Germany learning English; it will be published by Klett Sprachen in March 2021.
