Schools

I've been whizzing around the country over the past few weeks, visiting schools, leading creative writing sessions and talking about my books.

I had a great World Book Day at Fairholme School in Hounslow - here are some fantastic photos. If you click through to the last one in the collection, you can see a picture of me opening Fairholme's great new library. I actually got to cut the ribbon!

I went to Brixington School in Exmouth, and here is a nice piece from their local paper.

And here's a photo from a day that I spent at Harris Academy in Peckham.


Thank you to these three, and all the other schools who have hosted me. I've been from Nottingham to Yeovil, Folkestone to Croydon, and I always come home buzzing from the enthusiasm of the kids and teachers. An ordinary day at my desk, sitting on my own, telling stories, feels very quiet and mundane...
