Our old house in SCABBAJACK country!

We just had enough energy to finish off our Winter school tour at two lovely schools in the North – Bingley Grammar School and Cherry Fold Community Primary.

Bingley Grammar School are fast becoming close friends of ours. Jenny Barnes is

keen to have us in school firing up her Year 7  pupils and this was our second visit. We had a great time performing in front of all the Year 7 pupils followed by a workshop with a selected group.

During our Bingley visit we made time to look in at our old house in School Street in the nearby village of Steeton – this is where the very spooky story of SCABBAJACK was inspired. We also visited nearby Skipton and thoroughly enjoyed exploring all the old familiar haunts along the shops and walks in the quaint canal-side setting. And then it was time to sign lots of books at Bingley Grammar before moving on to our last school of the term in Burnley.

Our hotel in Burnley was in a very attractive setting and very convenient for

Two great interviewers at Cherry Fold Primary

Cherry Fold Community Primary School (We love the name!) Helen Smith did a fantastic job organising and hosting us – thank you so much, Helen. The staff and pupils were brilliant and made our first visit memorable for all the right reasons. Two of the pupils even interviewed me after the presentation and did a very professional job…and they never even asked how old I am! Thanks for that! We hope to return to Cherry Fold in the not too distant future and maybe even have our Son, Simon, with us.

And now it’s Easter and time to relax…and to get more spooky ideas for more spooky, scary books. Watch this space as they say!
