Diary/Upcoming Events

I’m delighted that some in-person events are available once again!

I tend to split my time between spells of writing and spells of events, so if there are no events listed below it just means I’m currently writing. But don’t let that stop you from getting in touch if you are interested in arranging an event.

Events are always fun, whether school or library visits, festivals or bookshops. My picture books are aimed at 4 to 8-year-olds, making them ideal for lower primary visits. Although, I also enjoy visiting upper primaries, where we focus more on being a writer, the writing process, finding an illustrator and publisher, getting my books into books shops, and life as an author.

16th November – Townhill Primary School in Hamilton

What a way to spend publication day…with a school visit! Perfect! 

As part of Book Week Scotland, I’ll be reading The Fairy in the Kettle and chatting about writing.


19th & 20th November – Brechin & Angus Book Festival

I’m thrilled to be invited back to the Brechin & Angus Book Festival for the second year in a row, and this year (Covid permitting) events will be in person.

I’ll be in the Northern Hotel in Brechin, along with a fantastic array of authors spanning genres.

Friday 19th November, 1.30 pm – 5.15 pm, I will be in Hudsons Room as part of the Storytelling & crafts activities for pre-school and primary children.  As always, I’ll have a selection of arts and crafts to accompany my stories. Entry is free but places are to be reserved via email at brechin.angusbf@gmail.com

Saturday 20th November, 11 am – 11.50 am I will be in the Anderson Room, alongside fellow author Steven Barr, chatting about our books and writing. I’ll chat about my adult fiction a little here too. Out with this time, I’ll be in the Northern Hotel with my books between 10 am and 4 pm, available for a chat, if you would like to come along and meet me and other authors attending the festival and browse our books.
