I still teach in the classroom four days a week. This means my time for school visits is limited, though I have set some mornings and afternoons aside for virtual visits. If you want to talk about super heroes, funny books, writing for pleasure or FIRE BOY or PANTS ON FIRE, please get in touch!
I am thrilled to find FIRE BOY in amongst the incredible books which the Book Trust have put on offer this year. If your school is registered in the Bookbuzz programme and want to speak to one of its authors about how I started out as an author, what inspired me to write FIRE BOY, would like to organise a workshop or just want to ask me some questions, let me know. I have used Bookbuzz myself as a teacher and want to help support it in any way I can.
Will there be physical author visits from September onwards in 2021?
Who knows? But it can’t hurt to ask.
I will be out and about on Mondays mostly (and a few others days, timetable permitting) from September. If you would like me to take an assembly or run a workshop for children in Key Stage 2 or 3, use the contact page to email me the details and I will reply as soon as I can.
Fees for visits are negotiable and dependent on requests and the number of children taking part.
