'Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child's academic success.'
-Organisation for Worldwide Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
As a former specialist children's bookseller of ten years, I am hugely passionate about encouraging a love of reading in children. I have travelled all over the UK and abroad doing events in schools and libraries, sharing the story of how I became an author, and taking students on a voyage through the mysterious world of my Uncommoners books. I offer a variety of events, from an interactive presentation designed for school assemblies, to smaller creative writing workshops aimed at helping students unlock their imaginations.
