Author Talks

As an author, you would expect me to be passionate about writing and I am. I love what I do and consider myself privileged to be able to pursue it as a career. It's early days and I am learning all the time which is why I'm keen to share my experiences. I feel I have an interesting story to tell. 

I offer 2 types of services:  to schools and to organisations / businesses.

Both are free of charge.

School talks

My background as a primary school teacher gives me a good insight into the skills children need to write well. However, I will leave that up to the brilliant teachers we have. What I offer is an hour's talk on the following;

  • What inspired me to become a writer

  • What might inspire pupils to write

  • The importance of reading to generate ideas to write

  • The benefits of writing freely

  • How I use the writing process to help me write

  • Editing - opportunities to edit my works in progress for younger readers

  • How to self publish

I am happy to work with individual children, small groups or classes. I am also more than happy to come in for a day or half a day to work with different groups / classes.

Businesses / Organisations

Perhaps you would like to invite a guest speaker to one of your team meetings? Or maybe your organisation regularly has speakers along to entertain its members? If so, I am very happy to come along and talk for half an hour to an hour about my experiences as an aspiring author. I can cover:

  • What inspired me to change from being a full time teacher to becoming an author.

  • What it is like to be a writer

  • What I write about

  • Self publishing v traditional publishing as a way into getting a book published

If you would like to discuss either of these options, please do contact me on Facebook, Instagram or on my email:
