Thank you for your welcome!
(Some of my books photographed in the Lighthouse School library, as well as a display.)
On 4th November 2016 I had the pleasure of visiting the Lighthouse School, which is a school in Cookridge, Leeds, for young people with an autistic spectrum condition or related communication disorder.
I was kindly invited and welcomed by teachers Caroline Maston and Lisa Mitchell. I was there to speak about my experiences as a writer in the hope that I could help encourage the students. I had an informal talk with several of the students, who asked well considered questions, such as how long it takes me to write a story, how I keep my writing going, and what advice I would give to young authors. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the school and meeting the teachers and students; there was a nice atmosphere and I would be happy to visit again.
I hope the students continue with their interest in writing, and I’m sure they have a lot to write about 🙂
