What inspired you to write The Last Wild?


I was inspired to write The Last Wild by the shocking discovery that Earth has lost over 60% of its wildlife in the last 40+ years. What will happen in the next 40 years. Will there be any animals left, and if not, what are we going to do about it? What are YOU going to do about it?


Do you visit schools?


Yes. As I am based in London, most of my visits take place in the Southeast. But budget and time permitting, I do try and visit as many schools across the UK as I can. For more information on how to arrange a visit, the sessions I offer, and fees, please contact:

Victoria Rontaler at Rontaler PR & Events.



Will there be another book in “The Last Wild” series?


Not for the time being. “The Wild Beyond”, the third book in the series, is the conclusion of Kester, Polly, Aida and all their animal friends’ adventures as I see it for now. I firmly believe that those left at the end of that story have very exciting futures ahead of them! But never say never. There might be a fourth book one day, you never know…
