I worked as a primary school teacher before becoming published so I know how much an author visit can enthuse and inspire children. I can tailor my author events to your school and the age of the children. For Key Stage 1, I use a dragon theme connected to my book The Storm Dragon. I use this to work with the children to develop interesting vocabulary to describe dragons.
For Key Stage 2, I use a monster theme connected to my book Robyn Silver. I use this to work on developing characters and settings with the children. I like to involve the children with some of them coming up to the front. Whole school assemblies with both Key Stages are also based on Robyn Silver. I also offer smaller writing workshops for 30 children or less. These can cover a topic of your choice such as describing settings, developing amazing characters or writing brilliant action sequences.
I am based in Buckinghamshire and I can travel anywhere, although I'll need to include an overnight stay in my fee if the journey takes more than 3 hours. My fees are £400 for a full day or £250 for a morning, which is in line with Society of Authors suggested rates.
