I have over thirty years' experience visiting schools, libraries and festivals where I do a mixture of storytelling, writing workshops and reading from my books and stories. If your school is in the Leeds area, you can book me through @LeedsSLS.  Phone Kirsty Fenn 

 It has been a real treat and a pleasure to have you come and work with the children. They have all taken something from today.

Richmond Hill Academy Primary, Leeds. February 2018

It’s so great that the kids know who you are and teachers are excited to have you in too. Everyone really enjoyed Thursday so just wanted to say thank you. 
Meadowfield Primary, Leeds. February 2018


"Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for your visit on Thursday! Year 5 and 6 loved talking to you, and the feedback from parents and children at the after-school storytelling was also superb. We don't often invite parents to our author events, so it's great to build those links."

Jonathan Bentham, Rufford Park Primary, Yeadon. April 2017 

Thank you again for the marvellous day . The children and staff were really enthused .

Kate Isaacs, St Margaret Clitherow Catholic Primary School, February 2016

I just wanted to say a huge thank you from everybody at school today. We have all had a great day and the children were really buzzing after meeting and working with you.

Lauren Scott, Wellington Primary, January 2015

The children were completely spellbound by your unique ability to capture and sustain their imaginations. I'm sure we will be working with you again soon.

Jennie Williams, Greave Primary School, Stockport, September 2014

I am writing to warn you that there are a number of letters on their merry way to you.  Year Three absolutely loved your visit here at Kelvin Grove, and we have talked about it almost every day since.

Alice Green, Kelvin Grove Primary, London. January 2013

By far the best author student interaction i have viewed.  Your presentations were spellbinding!

- Kerry Heywood, Holbeach Primary, London, July 2012

The children are still talking about your visit. Our school library is lending out all your books much more often and we have been asked when you will be coming again.  Thanks so much for an amazing day.
- Tracey Bentley, Christ Church School, Skipton June 2012

Dear Saviour, Thank you so much for coming to our school! The staff and children couldn't stop singing your praises and were so impressed with you. I am glad you had a good day and appreciate all the input you gave in encouraging our pupils to read and write. Once again thank you and take care! 

- Rebecca Hubbard, literary co-ordinator, Southville Primary, Feltham. March 2012

Thank you so much for a wonderful day. The children and staff thoroughly enjoyed listening to you and your amazing recount of Billy's Magic Tail.   


The workshops were very informative and pitched at exactly the right level for the junior classes. I know they learnt a lot and enjoyed the learning experience at the same time.   We very much hope that you will be able to visit our school again in the future.

- Mrs C. Kissinger, acting Headteacher, St Mary's Catholic Primary, Isleworth. March 2011

We loved it! There's a real buzz here after your visit! Please come again!
