I was a high school English teacher for over ten years. I taught in some of England’s most beautiful boarding schools: Haileybury, Downe House and Wellington College. In every school I shared my writing passion with students and inspired them to follow their own dreams, literary or otherwise.
Now that I’ve realised my own dream of being a full-time novelist, it is a particular joy to be invited to schools to talk about my life as a writer and my latest YA novel, Wishbones. I can’t wait to meet the students of Proctor Academy and to launch their involvement in NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month.
