It was lovely to return to Totnes Library, this time to delight in all things biscuits, books and pirate mice!
This week Leigham Primary School celebrated Book Week and I was delighted when they asked me to join them.
As a children’s writer the line between the real and the imaginary is often blurred, so imagine my excitement when I heard that it is entirely possible to build an aerodynamic biscuit rocket!
There was a real buzz at Blackpool C of E Primary School today, as the Key Stage One and Reception classes joined me for a morning of story writing and a special assembly.
To celebrate the publication of my Maverick early reader with Sophia Touliatou, ‘Biscuit Blast Off!’ I thought I’d share a little bit about how the new book came about since early readers can be something of a mystery to authors.
I have come to the conclusion (and it wasn’t difficult) that joining The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators is the BEST New Years resolution I ever made …. accidentally- on -purpose !
Here’s where I fess up that joining (what I now know is a wonderfully supportive group of like-minded people), was actually a mistake!
To help me explain I’ve created a timeline:
Today words (nearly) failed me… and please note, this doesn’t happen often.
At an event at Waterstones, Drake Circus, Plymouth I was totally overwhelmed with the love and support from friends, family and shoppers.
Happy 19th September, which is also National #talklikeapirateday! Aharrrr!
