School Visits/Appearances

I am available for school visits and can tailor my appearance to meet individual class needs; this might include:

  • Creative writing exercises – how to come up with ideas and follow through.
  • Reading and comprehension exercises.
  • A talk on my journey to publication and my experience as an author – including answering popular questions such as where do I get ideas from and what’s my favourite flavour of ice-cream (choc-mint).

I charge the recommended rates of the Australian Society of Authors which can be found here.

I am also available to speak to community groups or at mental health events.
