School, library, bookshop events, and festivals are always great fun, and details of my T&Cs can be found below:
School and Library visits
- I am more than happy to talk to pupils from nursery level up to Primary 7. Mixing year groups isn’t a problem either. My talks usually last 30 minutes for Nursery children and between 40 minutes and 1 hour for older children. However, I can easily adapt to a timetable that suits you. Whether I talk to classes individually or as a lower/upper primary split is entirely up to you.
- I read from one of my books before answering any questions the children may have on writing structure, finding an illustrator/publisher, what has inspired me to write, getting my books onto bookshelves, marketing, and life as an author.
- My aim is to leave children inspired to write. My background is in pharmacy and latterly in primary pupil support so not what the pupils might expect for an author……reiterating that anyone can write.
- I would appreciate being able to make copies of my books available to purchase on the day. I usually discount them when selling through a school or library and I am more than happy to take the time to dedicate and sign each book.
Bookshop Events & Festivals
- These events allow me to bring out the arts and crafts. Always relevant to the story, for instance, children have enjoyed making their own fairy wings, wands, and fairy finger puppets.
- There are always colouring sheets with images from within the books, these are often a hit with the adults too.
- All are enjoyed after storytime fun.
