I have over ten years experience of school and library visits. I've travelled to most spots in the UK but I've also performed school workshops in Indonesia and Europe. My fantasy adventure series The Peck Chronicles is full of imagination and tension. Other novels like Windscape and The Egg Thief explore environmental issues through adventures stories that draw children in but ultimately let them decide how they feel themselves about various issues. My new novel - Sunny has a workshop which explores bullying and differences through imagination.

I was so lucky to be asked by a collection of Waterstones branches for a collection of book-signings which were such delightful affairs. Children and parents meeting me? What more could one ask for of a Saturday?
I visit prep and state schools regularly to encourage, to entertain and to help instil a sense of fun and magic into the lives of children. A live talk with a person is far more intriguing than wondering if what if? - if you are an inspiring author? Books entertain and teach and guide and create a familiarity and a resonance between the words and the reader.
I've also lectured from an author stance to the WI. And only two of them fell asleep.
