Doing Authory things again

Doing Authory things again

If you have been following my journey since the beginning you’ll know about my love of “authory things”. These are all the things you imagine yourself doing all the time as an author that, in reality, you don’t get to do much at all because you’re editing, marketing and convincing people to buy your book!

Well last weekend was full of them…

Read to 180 pupils

… I read my book to 180 pupils at my son’s school

They were celebrating their rainbow day for Pride which made the day even more exciting!




Chaperone at Barnes literary festivalThen on Saturday I volunteered for Barnes’ Children’s Literature Festival.

I got to chaperone four lovely authors to their events, chat about their books and watch them all flourish doing their authory things on stage.

Rob Biddulph

…and to top it all off Rob Biddulph remembered me from last year and LOVED reading My Family is So Scottish
