Contact me

I enjoy visiting schools and libraries and talking to children.  I also like it when they ask questions!

My rates are as suggested by the Society of Authors, but I can be flexible.  Feel free to ask me about the charge and discuss, with no obligation. I prefer to do one session or half day visits – whatever fits in best with your school.

As a guide, I can talk to a school assembly, a selected year group, or go into different classrooms.  I would read the story.  I can talk about the whole process of a book’s development, from the first idea, the re-writing/editing, getting accepted for publication, working with the editor and artist (for a picture book).  This can be tailored for Nursery children, Years 1,2,3 and also for older Primary schoolchildren.

If you are in the London area I would not need any travel expenses.

I am also happy to talk to any adult group that would like to hear about the whole process of writing picture books.
