It’s a special experience for a child – watching an author dedicate a book to them, a book which they can then take home to read and keep.

I am very happy to sign books after all events and I always take time to chat with individual children so they have a positive memory of the day. A local bookshop should be able to provide them or, if this isn’t possible and you would like me to bring along books to be purchased, this can also be arranged with two weeks notice. They all cost £6.99.

Or maybe you are a library or a festival organiser and need something a bit different? Get in touch at and we can discuss details.
