Sophie presents a variety of lively and fascinating author talks for a variety of ages, angled around a variety of themes which explore an author’s life, and the writing process. These include, but are not limited to:
What’s it really like being an author?
The author’s journey: from childhood scribbler to published writer.
Where do you get your ideas from?
From non-English speaking child to established author: how being bilingual and brought up in two worlds influenced my writing
The journey of a book: from lightbulb idea to the bookshop.
Writing for children: is it different to writing for adults?
Ideas that work, and ideas that don’t: and how you can distinguish between them!
