School Visits Summer Term 2011

Out of Time was published 1 May 2011 and its been non-stop since...
Starting with schools in the Furness area-where the story is set, was a natural beginning. Even though I am a teacher with 20 years experience it was nevertheless daunting, visiting schools and promoting my new novel. This is surely the biggest test-reading aloud to the children and waiting for their response! Well, I'm glad to report that it's all been positive and even enthusiastic, which encouraged me to continue.
Schools visited so Far include:
  • Sir John Barrow Primary, Ulverston
  • Yarlside Juniors, Barrow
  • St James CE Juniors, Barrow
  • St Paul's CE Juniors, Barrow
  • Newbarns Primary, Barrow
  • Victoria Juniors, Barrow
  • Holy Family RC Primary, Barrow
  • St Gerard's RC Primary, Lostock Hall, Preston
Thanks to all involved and for the support and enthusiasm you all showed and for the  invitations to book clubs and the like. I look forward to expanding my visits to the north of the county in September.
