By way of a reference, here’s a really lovely letter that was sent to my publishers from St. Andrew’s School in Bath:-

‘Michelle spent the whole day with us, launching our World Book week activities and spending time in all our 7 classrooms. She conducted readings of her books with the younger children, which they adored, and answered questions about the writing process from the older children. It was a truly inspirational day.

She was polite, informed and displayed a warmth towards our children that was notable from the moment she arrived. We would definitely like to have her back in the future.’

Patron of Reading

I’m enormously proud to be Patron of Reading for Trinity CEVC First School, Frome. I try and help the teaching staff connect the children with books they’ll love – both fiction and non-fiction. We have a motto when we are together:

Doodle, Daydream and Have Fun!

The school already has such a great approach to reading that my role really is a piece of cake. We have so much fun together no one really notices that they’re improving their literacy skills and creativity at the same time. Sneaky or what?

I get a real kick out of sharing my books with children – seeing their reactions is what keeps me writing. Their energy, creativity, humour and warmth is always an inspiration. It’s also positively contagious. I owe them a lot!
