Author visits

Jenny enjoys meeting young readers and is happy to speak in schools, libraries, bookshops and at festivals about The Mirror of Pharos and the adventures behind the writing of the story. You can read about her visits to Reading Blue Coat School and Bushmead Primary and watch an interview with Paul Bellany, filmed when she spoke to the young writers at Creative Walden.

As a former farmer she’s especially keen to connect children with nature. In conjunction with her own work, she talks about the way wolves are depicted in literature and elsewhere. With an MA in Writing for Young People and a background in publishing, she aims to enthuse children about reading and sow the seeds for their own creative writing.
