Paul Murdoch is an author who specialises in school and library visits. His book Sunny let’s kids talk about racism and bullying through an adventure story. His new book Old Bloke Goes Running takes a funny and sometimes irreverent look at trying to get fit in your fifties.

Paul has worked with 100’s of schools all over the UK and Ireland. He has also performed school and library visits in Bali and Germany.
The Author Sessions: Paul performs workshops or assembly-type, interactive presentations. Either with 20 -40 children in a classroom or 100-500 children in a hall, he explores their own creativity and ability to form stories using pictures, games and exercises. He also performs key-note speeches at prize giving's and often works on specific projects.
Paul currently has six interactive workshop/presentations. The first three are designed to lead onto each other. They result in the class/group producing a fable, using their own characters, dialogue and settings. Click on the titles below for much more detail.
1. The 'Imagination Workshop (P4-S3)
2. The 'Window on Another World' Workshop (P4-S3)
3. The 'Fables are Fun' Workshop (P4-S3)
4. The Windswept and Interesting Workshop (P4-S3)
5. The Tiffy and Toffy Workshop (P1-P3)
6. The Sunny Workshop - (P6-S6)
I love presenting and really getting children involved in workshops from the start. I've seen over 30,000 children in hundreds of schools, libraries and festivals. My new book - Sunny - explores topics such as racism and sectarianism through an engaging mystery adventure, while my latest book for adults, Old Bloke Goes Running takes a funny look at trying to get fit in your fifties.
