  • Horror Night at Hope Library

    I had an absolutely fantastic time at Hope Library, sharing with the audience my new novel Bonds Re-Bound, as well as discussing the difference between terror and horror and exploring why it is we like to be scared.


    Here are some snaps of the evening.

  • October 27th: A Scary Night With Marie Anne Cope

    Come and join me for a night of scares as Hallowe’en approaches.

    I will then be exploring what it is that draws us to horror and why we like to be scared, before reading to you a rather dark short story!

    There will be opportunities for questions, chats and, of course, to purchase my books.

    Refreshments and nibbles will be provided and FANCY DRESS is optional. I do hope you partake ?

    I can’t wait to see you all!!

  • Books Inside Out at Wrexham Library

    Here the children get the chance to write their own stories, which are included in quarterly publications.

    As well as introducing more young people to Mina, Achoo, Zoe and Boo – The Misfits – I also talked to them about how I go about writing my books and how a book goes from being written to being published.

    It’s safe to say that a good time was had by all ?

  • Write Blend Book Fair


  • Author Visit to Lower Heath Primary School

    It’s such an honour to be told by parents that I ‘inspired’ their child and that their child had ‘the best day at school ever’. It is also a huge endorsement that the teachers loved my visit too ?

    Here are some snaps:


  • Authors, Books and Bubbles at Alkington Grange Barns

    Seeing children and adults alike enjoying The Misfits was a great pleasure for me….as was scaring the adults at the end of the night with a much darker and sinister tale ?

    Here are a few snaps from the day!
