  • 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 ?

  • 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!

  • Learning at Lunchtime at Wrexham Library

    Wednesday 1st November 2017

    1pm til 2pm

    Wrexham Library, Wrexham, LL11 1AU

    Come and join my Learning at Lunchtime event as I share with you the process I use for planning my novels.

    I will use my second novel, Broken Bonds, as an example as I take you through picking your characters’ names and developing them into real people and advice on mapping out the bones of your story before fleshing it out.

    This will be followed by a chat about the themes and messages within Broken Bonds. I will finish with a reading from the novel before fielding any burning questions you may have about writing.

    There will also be an opportunity to purchase signed copies of all my novels.

    I hope to see you there!!
