Virtual Author Events

Virtual Author Talk

My talks are set up on your own password protected page. They include a series of short videos, including a personalised welcome to the school or group, an introduction of what we are doing, how book covers are designed and judging a book by its cover, book trailer and discussion of latest book with a short reading, imagining where the story will go next, what do authors do all day anyway, advice for writers, and becoming an author and getting published.

Writing Workshop: Finding Your Story

Whether your students are keen or reluctant writers, this workshop is designed to enthuse and guide them in finding their story - the one only they can tell. Run in the same format as the talk described above, a series of videos will set them short tasks. The workshop will end with a beginning: the start of a story that can be worked on further.

Comment boxes and Q&A in the virtual author talk

Comment boxes can be included in your personalised page, so students - or a teacher or librarian on their behalf - can answer questions and ask them, too - and have me answer live during their event in comments for up to half an hour. This doesn't involve video and doesn't require personal login information from participants. 

I will answer as many questions as I can in the 30 minute time allowed. Luckily I'm a very fast touch typist! My current record is forty-two.

Personalised video answering your questions

Send in your questions in advance and I'll do a personalised video answering as many of them as I can, and include it on your page. If you'd rather send questions after the event I'll do the same and send another link to access the video of answers. Video will be up to half an hour long.

The fine print:

All prices are subject to 20% VAT, which is added on during checkout. Tax invoices will be issued showing the VAT and my VAT number for UK schools paying by invoice, and for anyone paying by credit card who requests a tax invoice.


Both talks and workshops are designed to take place within one lesson and take roughly an hour, though of course this may vary with the group.


No problem if you want to check with me first that a particular day or week is available: do so in the contact form below. Otherwise instructions on how to book your event will be received soon after the order is place.


Invoices may be paid by BACS, stripe with a credit card on my website, or cheque.


Inclusion of a personalised welcome to your school requires two weeks notice, though if you ask I may be able to do it faster than that. Likewise with a personalised video answering your questions.


There is no limit as to numbers taking part in my talk or workshop; both large year groups and small book groups have taken part successfully. However, if booking a Q&A there is only the allotted time for me to answer questions. 


Events can be run with participants taking part on their own computer, laptop or phone; alternatively, a teacher or librarian can project the event in the classroom or library (internet is needed) or share their screen with participants on a platform such as zoom.


Booked events can be cancelled without penalty with four weeks notice. With two weeks notice they are subject to a £25 admin fee. Less than two weeks notice is subject to the smaller of 50% penalty of the order amount or £100.


Booked events are for the sole use of the party making the booking. Sharing passwords beyond the intended recipients or downloading or copying any part of the virtual events is a breach of copyright.
