What a lovely author visit to Manor High School, Oadby, presenting to several hundred kids over the morning. Very impressed with their listening and engagement. Hopefully I'll have inspired more reading and confidence in writing.
It's always interesting how things start off with kids clearly thinking it's just another visitor they have to listen to. That soon changes when they hear my story and how I wrote the book. The WW1 artefacts cause a few jaw dropping moments too.
Free KS3 school visits if you know a school who'd like one.
