Play explores the nuances of male friendships as four boys navigate towards adulthood - when one of them gets drawn into a county lines drugs gang, their childish games take a wrong turn. It's predecessor, Grow, is a critically acclaimed, tense, exciting, contemporary YA story about grief and far-right radicalisation. I am an experienced educator and speaker. My novels draw on my extensive work with young people as an English teacher, with a particular eye on reluctant male readers. My books deal with themes like anger, shame and friendship which I continue in my author talks on the importance of reading and in my engaging and inclusive workshops. I am flexible to your context and can tailor sessions for large and small groups to suit your requirements.

I have over fifteen 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 - The Magic Scales 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 Old Bloke Goes series looks at topics through an old bloke’s perspective. My new nature and heritage books have led me into presenting on nature and wellbeing.

Hello, my name is Denise Brown and I'm an author of YA murder mystery / thrillers.

Visual literacy is core to my all work. I adapt to your needs and different age groups using over 2 decades of experience as an author and illustrator working for publishers and visiting schools in different countries. In interactive assembly talks, classes and workshops, I can use my own picture books as a springboard around themes such as inclusivity ('You, Me and Our Whole Wide World'), pets and prehistory ('Mo's Best Friend, A Stone Age Story') or mark making ('Tiz and Ott's Big Draw'). In story making workshops I can prompt the most reluctant drawers and writers to create their stories from characters they build. In schools, libraries, museum and festivals my 'colour painting' workshops provide a calming, progressive way for all ages to create a huge variety of hues, shades, and skin tones using just 3 primary colours and white - guaranteed therapeutic fun! I also offer general talks centred on illustration and its history for older students.

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.

I'm full of enthusiasm and have great fun sharing my world and stories with children (and adults). I've created characters based on real life animals and their adventures reflect the natural world they live in. Books are illustrated throughout with cameo appearances on each page to keep the conversations fresh. My visits include activities with the children and as I'm an expert on the world of Polly Paint Pony, I love the challenge of Q&A with all children - curve balls included! Visits are tailored to suit the children's age groups with tongue twisting challenges to get all the children (and their teachers) involved.
