I can come to your writers’ group and talk about creative writing, how I got started, about my books for children and my writing for adults.

I can compere ceremonies and speak at events such as The Grampian Children’s Book Awards which I was Master of Ceremonies at last year. This involved introducing famous authors and their books, reading extracts from books for the authors who couldn’t be present, and even calling out the raffle.
