Meeting the person behind the story or the pictures can be the magic that helps reluctant readers engage, hesitant writers pick up a pencil, or shy kids find their voice.

So Head Teachers, when a librarian or a teacher comes bouncing into your office, asking is it okay to have an author visit...

       Do not hesitate...
       Do not reach for the accounts ledger...
       Do not stymie this enthusiasm...
       Do not wipe that smile...
       Just take a deep breath and say... 
YES!

           ...And let the magic begin 

love visiting schools, but know all too well that budgets are tight. Sadly, I can’t offer to come for free, or else my dog would go hungry! but there are lots of ways to make a visit more affordable, like linking up with other local schools.

I'm also available for festival events, book signings, compering award ceremonies etc (Just don't ask me to sing!)     contact me
