I offer school visits, creative writing workshops, and author visits

School Days

Book me to visit your school!

I provide an engaging, interactive author visit, suitable for P1-P3, including a reading, Q&A session, and related writing and art activity. This can be altered to last for 30-60 minutes, depending on what's the best fit for your class. I love hearing all the children's questions!



I deliver creative writing workshops, either as a one-off, or as part of an ongoing project. These are developed, depending on the age group, and their main interest. 


Author Events

I can visit your library, community group, or local book festival - this may include a reading, panel set-up, or other activities. Let me know as I have developed various sessions, depending on the organiser's needs.

Events and Updates
