As an author and creator, one of the most exciting things … is inspiring imagination in others. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some great classes in schools, helping children with their creative writing — everything from finding inspiring themes and keeping word diaries, to using punctuation and structure purposefully. Writing and stories, as I have also discovered, can be a great way for children to express themselves and find their own unique voice. Books are like little portals, where even those with learning challenges, can explore and discover and imagine!
Author visits and events are a great way to connect with readers and story lovers. I enjoy sharing what it’s like to be a writer and talking about how stories are made. It shows children that with a little imagination, anything is possible! Visits can be tailored to age and ability. They can also give children a fun behind-the-scenes peak into the wondrous world of book writing and creation.
My new fantasy adventure novel EARTH KEEPERS, The Secret Trail, will be released in early 2019. It’s been written with ages 9+ in mind, although many of the themes (see below for school resources) are universal. There’s also a local reference … for local children … hidden in the first chapter!
I’m excited to share this new adventure story with you all. To find out more about the book and its themes, please download this free EARTH KEEPERS Resource Sheet (coming soon!)
For all author event bookings, please use this contact form initially and I will get in touch, as soon as possible. I look forward to seeing you!
