I will be visiting participating schools this week now that the scheme has run its course. I have had lots of positive feedback so far and I can’t wait to hear the children’s final views and find out if it has made a difference. I’ve already been told about two autistic children who have identified so much with the main character that they refuse to go anywhere without it!
Wow! how wonderful and so touching! It’s the biggest reward I could ask for!
There will also be a book signing at Ad-Deen Primary School in Ilford on Thursday – so looking forward to it!
I was a guest speaker at Dagenham Library celebrating ALL WOMEN’S DAY where I read extracts from my books and talked about what inspired me to become an author. It was a wonderful day with so many astounding women talking about their various enterprises and achievements – in particular the esteemed lady Mayor of Barking and Dagenham herself Elizabeth Kangethe who was interested in ARTY TARDY! What an inspirational lady she is!
