Visit to St Katherine's School. Ham Green, Pill

I visited St Katherine's School today as part of the Bath Children's Literature Festival. I had a very enjoyable visit, speaking with 30+ year 8 and 9. Everyone participated in the writing exercises (maybe tempted by the prize of Justin Somper's Vampirates trilogy, and a pristine copy of BEAST)
I love it when students join in, ask questions and listen.
Thanks for a great visit!

And tomorrow is the West Oxfordshire Book Award, for which BERSERK has been shortlisted. Hurrah!
