|The children from Moorfield Primary were excited |
to get their hands on my new books!
I love doing the book signings - it means I get to meet children like Sam from Ladygrove Primary. Last year I told all the children at Ladygrove about my books, Stormy Cliff and The Secret Theatre. Sam was a reluctant reader, and yet he was so excited by my visit that he decided to buy Stormy Cliff. I met Sam again this year, and he told me that it was the first book he had ever read, and since then he has been reading lots of other books. Hearing this made my day, because the main reason I visit schools is to encourage children to give reading (and writing) a go, even if they find it hard! I hope Sam, and everyone else who bought Ghost Post and Doorway To Danger, enjoys reading them.
Thank you to all the staff at Shifnal, Ladygrove, Moorfield and Newdale for organising fantastic visits, and of course to Margaret and Roy for providing me with a home from home. I'll see you all as soon as my next book, The Ghost Lord Returns, is published!
