School visits

One of my favourite parts of being an author is getting to meet my readers. I enjoy going in to schools to run book sessions or workshops all based around game playing or coming down the front to put on costumes or take part in quizzes.

I normally charge for my visits (apply to me for current rates) but if you can lure me there with a massive book selling opportunity I’m open to negotiation! Read more here.


I’m also happy to appear as part of a festival. I’ve appeared at Edinburgh and Hay as well as many local and international ones. Get in touch if you think I’d fit in your programme. Read on here.

Writing workshops

I particularly enjoy running writing workshops with adults or children. I’ve been an Arvon tutor and been a guest lecturer on the Metropolitan University of Manchester Creative Writing MA as well in many schools. I was also writer in residence at the Dragon School in Oxford and the International School in Hong Kong and Beijing. Read on here.
