Amazing time and atmosphere at the Clevedon Literature Festival 2021
We hosted two amazing online events on our facebook page. Here is the first. Writing For Different Ages.
Five amazing and awards winning children authors, will be discussing their books , their inspiration and what is like writing for different ages.
Emma Carroll was a secondary school English teacher for many years. Secrets of a Sun King is Emma's eighth novel; she has also written the highly-acclaimed Frost Hollow Hall, The Girl Who Walked on Air, In Darkling Wood, The Snow Sister, Strange Star and Letters from the Lighthouse. 'The Somerset Tsunami' was selected by indie booksellers as their 'Book of the Month', and was 'The Times Children's Book of the Week.
Claire Barker was the Winner of the North Somerset teachers books awards ‘read aloud’ category 2019, as well as other awards. She graduated from Bath Spa University with a degree in English Literature and History. She studied illustration for a further two years and worked as a teaching assistant for several more. Claire used to live on narrowboats but now lives with her family on a small, untidy farm in deepest, darkest Devon. When she's not busy writing or illustrating she spends her days wrestling sheep, battling through nettle patches and triumphantly catching rogue chickens.
Stephanie Burgis grew up in East Lansing, Michigan, but now lives in Wales with her husband and two sons, surrounded by mountains, castles and coffee shops. She writes fun MG fantasy adventures and has published six so far, most recently the Dragon with a Chocolate Heart trilogy. She also writes wildly romantic adult historical fantasies, most recently the Harwood Spellbook series. She has had over forty short stories for adults and teens published in various magazines and anthologies.
Pip Jones spent her childhood gobbling up books and dreaming about being an author. At nineteen, she began a career in journalism, and in 2014, she published her first book. Pip is most often found either writing, staring at the contents of the fridge, or herding her two children. She lives in London.
