The Winds of Change

December 1, 2012

With Windscape finally printed and on release I began putting together a bit of a kid’s roadshow, where I get to talk about the new book and the topics it covers: the wind farm debate, friendship, racism and bullying.

My own Shangri-La.

March 10, 2011

A great day at Morrison’s Academy, a return to playing guitar and some super support in Oban. March began with a bang as I journeyed north to Oban with a pile of books in tow. Oban High are to use Windsacpe as a cross-curricular study book with the S2’s and want me to come back […]

The children had a fantastic time and showed off their own talents for writing and creating characters. Sam went on to […]
