Author Visit

Would you like to book an author visit for your school?

I am the author of books for middle-grade readers and I work with children in KS2 to encourage a love of writing.

My passion is encouraging children to enjoy the creative process and I aim to inspire even the most reluctant writers to just have a go and not be afraid.

I find many children lack confidence with their writing. They worry about getting it wrong. I understand writing is not always easy, but I reiterate to the children that nothing is perfect first-time around. I have to write many drafts before my books are finished, but if they don’t write down their thoughts and ideas, though, they have nothing to work on in the first place.

What can I help you with?

  • An author visit for your school
  • Regular school workshops

You can also download my media pack here. Or taker a look at my free resources to go alongside my books.


Virtual session via Zoom: £75 per hour.

Half day visit in person – to include two, 45-minute workshops, Q and A and book reading: £150.
Please note: mileage costs (over 25 miles) and accommodation are not included in this price.

Struggling to find the budget for an author visit? For a minimum of 30 guaranteed book sales (at a reduced rate for schools), I can deliver one 45 minute creative writing workshop with Q and A.
