I visit selected schools, bookshops, conferences, festivals and libraries, both in the UK and abroad, throughout the year, to talk to children about reading, writing and my books.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, I am equally happy to offer an online event instead, if you prefer and restrictions demand. These can also be pre-recorded.

To find out more about both my in person and online events please contact Victoria Rontaler at Rontaler PR & Events.

Can I read your books aloud online?


If you are a teacher, you may read aloud individual chapters at a time, that are not recorded, via a closed virtual learning environment for pupils only. Please don’t read whole books aloud in one session or record any of your readings. Thank you!




Where can I find classroom resources for your books?


You can watch my Last Wild video masterclasses and sign up for classroom resources at Authorfy

There are also some excellent free classroom resources for “The Last Wild” provided by Sustainable Learning

Teachers could sign up to CLPE’s excellent Power of Reading scheme and get a whole teaching sequence based on “The Last Wild”.




How much do you charge for a school visit?
