10th March 2020 – author visit

Hello readers,

I hope you are having a wonderful week.

Pigeon and I jumped on a train and headed to Waterloo. This time I did not miss my stop. The train kept stopping for minutes (which felt like hours) at a time but luckily I thought that might happen, so I raced to get the 8am train.

Soho Primary is situated close to Piccadilly Circus. What a cool place to go to school. It was their World Book Day. The entire hall was packed with kneeling little people looking up at me. Another technical hitch, I had left my usb stick at Eaton Square. aaaah!

The children who greeted me were so grown up for 11 year olds I was amazed. So polite and helpful.

I think my favourite part of this interactive storytelling was when the children said the last two sounds in perfect unison. I won’t spoil it by telling you what those sounds were. You will have to book me to come to your school!

Thanks for reading!

Pigeon & Lotus Classics

Pigeon loved being in the company of Lotus Classics as they played a variety of soulful tunes both modern and old classics. The crowds flocked to listen and watch from the railings above. For a moment in time as thought time had stood still, it was silent and all you could hear was the beautiful soft sounds of the individual instruments.

Author visit at Playmates nursery

Pigeon and I enjoyed visiting Playmates Nursery in Chessington to kick off our local author readings. The children seemed in awe of Pigeon’s adventure across London and nearly all of them went home with their special signed copy of The Tap-Dancing Pigeon Of Covent Garden. It was a great start to 2020!

Author visit at Little Sparrows, Esher

On Monday 11th November, Pigeon and I were invited to Little Sparrows nursery to read to three sets of ten children in their reading room. It was a really lovely time, Pigeon was a little shy to start off with and would not come out of his bag! The children were aged 2 to 4 years old, which I believe can be tricky age because of their attention span. It was a lovely experience!

I am taking bookings for 2020

Hello readers,

Esher library event – 29th October 2019

On 29th October 2019, Pigeon and I had a book reading event at Esher library in Esher, Surrey. It was wonderful to be reading The Tap-Dancing Pigeon Of Covent Garden to local people so close to our home. The children were amazed that Pigeon could actually coo and they were given the opportunity to cuddle him afterwards. It was so sweet! I love watching their facial expressions when I am telling the story because my book is such a rollercoaster of emotions and drama!

 

 

Waterstones – Covent Garden, Book reading

On 19th October 2019, I was given the opportunity to read my book at the store! At 3pm, crowds of little inquisitive people spilled into Waterstones and waited in anticipation to hear Pigeon’s story. Seven years ago, I was working in Covent Garden and used to spend my lunch breaks in this bookshop. So as you can imagine this was truly a dream come true to be able to read my published book in this store. It is so important to focus on your passion and really strive to achieve your aspirations because their are so many amazing benefits from creating and making your dreams come true.
