I write books for children of all ages and talk to schoolkids about creative writing
If things feel a little strange right now, it's because things ARE a little bit strange right now. But smile, it's going to be okay. You may not be able to play with your friends in the playground, but that doesn't mean you'll be bored. Take this opportunity to find out fascinating facts, make art, read books, learn magic tricks, make videos, pick up an instrument, write your own story. To help you on your awesomely busy learning-at-home journey, I'll be putting up videos, story-telling lessons, and links to stuff I think might keep you entertained. All on this page. So keep checking back. AND SMILE. IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY.
