Bog Baby Workshop...

• A Visit From Dr Xargle...

• Talking With Dinosaurs...

• How To Be An Author...

• No Frills Visit...


I’m happy to give author talks, workshops and perform readings subject to availability.
I mostly work in primary schools with Y1- 6 but also do workshops for trainee teachers and budding picture book authors. All sensible (or silly) suggestions considered.
In the last 30 years, I’ve visited all the venues below and hold a Performing Rights Licence.

Primary Schools/Nursery Schools
Brownie Huts
Children’s Reading Groups.
Literary Festivals
Book Weeks
Fete Openings
Radio Shows.


How to Book.

Please e-mail your request to:


Book Sales

If you’d like to sell my books at an event, this can probably be organized through your local bookseller in advance. It makes sense to have a member of staff available to do the selling/arrange for collection/storage of stock etc. Also if the event is for children, it’s advisable to remind parents of the date of the book sale so that the children remember to bring money.



All fees as stated unless previously agreed and include book signing.
Concessions may be available subject to request/location/availability.
Events can be mixed and matched* with discount if booked same day, same venue.
