Events and author visits…
I visit schools, bookshops, festivals and art colleges to talk about my work. My books are published as children’s books, but I see them as picture books for anyone, so the audience for my talks can be young or old.
Events can be:
reading & drawing (for younger ones), or simple workshops (talking about how to make a book, how I develop an idea, where the inspiration comes from), or full day workshops (developing an idea and looking at visual narrative, with one-on-one consultation on student's work). An event for an adult audience could include advice on how to get your story published and an insight into the publishing process.
I also mow lawns.
If you'd like to talk about booking me to speak at your school or at an event, drop me a line or two.
Some reviews of my books can be read here.
A 2017 interview about how I work and a bit of history by Dr Robyn Sheahan-Bright can be read here.

Selected past events…
I will be in Athens speaking at the British Council’s Drawing Words Exhibition which is currently touring all over the world. We’ll be at the Athens Concert Hall talking about words and pictures and saying things you want to say with both.
