What a special day today was. I had an appointment with Mrs Graham-Kevan from Broughton-in-Furness CE Primary School today. It was about something very exciting! I can now announce that I am Patron of Reading (PoR) for this school and will be working with pupils very soon.

Patron of Reading is an exciting and important initiative which I am proud to be involved with. It gives authors like me the opportunity to connect and work with a school and form a personal attachment. My role will be to encourage and promote reading for pleasure and enjoyment.

It is hoped that the involvement of an author can inspire children and create a buzz about reading. I look forward to going into school to work with pupils and to provide opportunities to share my love of books and reading and set challenges and create activities for us all to enjoy.
