Q: What age groups do you work with?
I’m happy to work with any age group but my books are best suited to secondary age – from Year 7 upwards for The Year of The Rat and from Year 9 upwards for How Not To Disappear (there are some fairly strong themes in this book so you may wish to discuss this with me).
Q: Do you charge for your visits?
Yes, I usually charge the Society of Authors recommended rates, plus travel expenses. This may vary depending on the number of workshops or talks I deliver in a day. If you contact me with specific details I can tell you what my fee would be.
Q: Do you do workshops?
Yes, I can run a range of workshops which can focus on a specific aspect of writing, e.g. character, setting, plot, how to generate ideas from the world around you. I can run these for schools, for creative writing students, at festivals, or in any setting. If you are interested please contact me for more details.
