Author visits, library visits, creative writing workshops
I love to meet my readers, and talk to teenagers about reading, writing and books.
My books and short stories are aimed at KS2 and KS3 and young adults. I am very happy to talk about the themes in my books and the discussions those themes raise are lively, inclusive and leaves kids with much food for thought.
I write short stories too, which are perfect for creative writing workshops. Kids taking part in one of my creative writing workshops learn how to craft a story.
Not only that, they also learn how to collaborate with a partner. Developing listening, reading and writing skills are all part of the creative writing workshop.
Using a variety of opening paragraphs and opening sentences, in the creative workshop kids can also explore the different genres of fiction, from contemporary, adventure, science fiction/dystopian, magic/fantasy, horror, historical to ghost stories and more.

My fees are set at The Society of Authors guidelines for either a whole day or half a day, so please contact me if you would like current details or would like any other information.
I am also available for festivals and library visits, so please get in touch if you would like me to visit your library or be part of a panel at a festival, or for an author talk.
I will be at Berkofest 2018, in the Waterstones Tent on two panels - one discussing publishing and writing tips, and the other with Tamsyn Murray, talking teen lit.
I will be at YA LIT Cardiff on 29th September, talking about identity in teen/YA fiction with Katherine Webber and Tracy Darnton.
