Author visits

Are you looking for a different kind of author visit, one that involves a REAL scientist? You’re in the right place!

Book me for a school or library visit today.

STEM and storytelling go together, even though they’re often taught in completely different parts of the curriculum.

Do you need an engaging and interactive way to bring the love of STEM to your students? Look no further.

I offer a wide variety of sessions for schools and libraries, tailored to different ages and interests.

From interactive readings and STEM workshops to Q&A sessions or book signings, there is an option for everyone.

Topics include:

  • The Human Body
  • Health Research and Medicine
  • How To Vanquish A Virus
  • The Mind-Blowing Future of Medicine
  • Astrobiology: the search for life on other planets

What I Offer

I’m available for school or library visits, panel discussions, festivals and book or STEM clubs.

I offer STEM storytelling workshops for students in Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 for up to 20 children. Please note the children must be supervised by a teacher at all times so I can focus on delivering an engaging workshop.

My workshops focus on how I use science to create stories rather than writing itself.

At the end of the session there will be a Q&A and a book signing, if requested.


For a single class-based workshop, the cost is £750 plus VAT plus expenses.

In terms of travel, I am happy to travel to your school or library in the UK or Ireland, as long as accommodation, travel expenses and subsistence are covered.

I also provide Virtual Events, conducted via Zoom. One-hour virtual sessions are £250 plus VAT.
