More Information About Individual Books

A number of schools and individual people have been searching for more information about particular books. 

If you look on the More Information Page and the choose a book and then click on the drop down menu for that book, you will find lots of material, including photographs, work schemes, all sorts of things. 

Please feel free to contact me. I will always try to help.

Zoom School Visits

I am offering Zoom School Mini Visits from October 2021. They will be approx. 40 min and consist of: Short talk about books and reading, Swallows' Flight or Skylarks' War Powerpoint, Q and A.

I can adapt to individual schools, to a certain extent. Hopefully you will be able to either send in student's questions in advance, or message them to me at the time, (or whatever other method you have found that works best for you).

Please contact me via this website to book/discuss/etc.

Looking forward to meeting new readers VERY MUCH!!!
