I enjoy about 30–40 school visits and similar workshops each year, they are great fun and always rewarding.

These workshops and other events are held in schools, libraries, bookstores and similar centres. Usually as part of a book week, science project, literacy programme, library celebration or similar.

Events are based around planning, research, writing, editing, design and illustration – but not always in that order. Emphasis can be placed wherever you wish along the chain.

Topics for focus can usually be chosen from my author list, to fit with subjects currently being studied, from human digestion or the nature of light, to the latest news on evolution, global warming or interplanetary probes.
