Free pre-recorded video talks on writing and publishing

On this page, you will find links to new illustrated talks I’m making available on my You Tube channel. They feature picture slides and audio. These illustrated talks are free to watch and share and are suitable for both kids and adults, and for use in schools. However they are not to be sold or used commercially in any way.

Here’s a brand-new one on how some of my picture books were created.

You can find out more about the process behind some of the books at the links below:
