Author Visits

I can use any of my books as the foundation for different sessions and workshops to inspire you to have as much fun reading and writing as I do.
Everyone has their own unique imagination, and I can inspire you to find exciting images, adventures and questions in your own head, and turn them into stories.
In an author visit, I will usually read from one of my books, tell a traditional tale linked to the background of the book, do some imagination activities and answer questions about reading, writing and books. This can be an introduction to a class that hasn’t read the book, or a follow-up for a class that has read it.

Storytelling Sessions

I can create storytelling sessions to fit in with the curriculum, with projects, festivals and special occasions, or I can just tell stories for fun!I can build workshops using traditional tales to encourage assertiveness, to bring local history alive, or to create your own riddles. We can talk about whether traditional tales are true of false, enjoy both hero and heroine tales, and visit cultures all over the world. Or I can create new workshops just for your school or organisation, because stories can do anything!
