I love talking about books! I've done school and 'Gifted and Talented' Workshops, mostly in Yorkshire and the north of England, and can offer workshops, creative writing sessions, and storytelling. I've done storytelling at the Hebden Bridge Festival and also as part of the Education Team at Hexham Abbey. All ages from pre-school to adult.
I''ve written retellings of Bible Stories and saints' stories, and in my role as a volunteer at Hexham Abbey I work with children of all ages, telling and dramatising traditional stories. Animal themed workshops always go down well, too.
I've taught creative writing courses to adults in North Yorkshire and Northumberland.
I'm based in Northumberland, so the north-east is my preferred region, but West Yorkshire is a possibility, as is Cardiff. I don't rule anything out!
I'm happy to consider commissions. Contact me if there's something you want to discuss.

I've written over forty books for ages from pre-school upwards - animals, history, humour. The hero is usually is a young character facing struggles with resourcefulness and supportive friends.
