Book Week at Trinity College

It’s Book Week at Trinity College and I was invited to meet with years 7, 8 and 9 to talk all things books. I spoke with the pupils about discovering books as a child, my connection to Matilda and why ALL our stories are important.

It was fantastic to get so many questions about writing, being an author and how to stay on track as a writer. My top tip for the day was to read and read widely if you want to be an author – it helps you figure out what kind of stories you want to tell and how you want to tell them.

Thank you so much for inviting me to celebrate books with you all, Trinity College – I had such a wonderful time.
