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.

"Acknowledged as a writer who gets ‘into the heads’ of his subjects and stories, Edward Couzens-Lake’s distinctive narrative style has been creating waves in the UK for a few years now.
Yet, with much of his work submitted to clients and publishers as a well established and respected ‘ghost’, it has not always been able to match the story or the book with the writer.
Distinctive narrative style? Yes. It mixes humour, occasionally dark in its origins but always cutting and often laugh aloud funny mixed with a taste for the critical, this is a writer who summons the spirit of the sixties in his work and words, someone who doesn’t always exercise tact or subtlety but always researches his work beyond the literary event horizon before standing fiercely by same.
Give him an idea and he’ll create unforgettable copy".
