I have spent half my life in New Zealand and half in Australia. I love the hot, red, dusty Australian outback and the cool, drippy, muddy wetness of the New Zealand bush. Kookaburras make me laugh and Tuis make me sigh and my two favourite foods are prawns and freshly smoked trout.
My writer's talks and workshops are more fun than recess and phys ed and my PDs are more fun than lunch, (with cake!)
teach kids how to write and I can teach teachers how to teach kids to write!
With 20 years experience writing and teaching I possess a unique combination of experiences, insights and skills, (not to mention boundless enthusiasm,) which I've used to carefully craft a series of writer's talks and workshops, (for children,) and professional development sessions, (for teachers,) that are like no other.
I conduct 3 x one hour writer's talks per day or 2 x one and a half hour workshops. There is a workshop element to all my writer's talks.
