“Kathryn’s talk was engaging and lively – it totally fulfilled the ‘passion for reading’ brief!... Flexible, funny and interesting, Kathryn is a great speaker who knows how to interact with her audience.”

Kate Angus, Chichester High School

“Young adults can sometimes prove to be hard to engage and yet they were listening and laughing consistently throughout.”

Will Bowerman, Southdowns College

“Kathryn is very easy to work with and has an excellent way of interacting with children and young people... The children were completely engaged and the talk was relevant to their age and interest.”

Kerry Brookes, West Sussex Libraries

“Kathryn’s relaxed manner really engaged the pupils straight away, her whole talk was really interesting and we sold lots of her books!... Great idea to have a bag of pre-prepared questions in case pupils lose their tongues!!”

Margaret Bone, Bishop Luffa School

“I’ve already recommended Kathryn to other schools because of emails I received from staff who saw her talk and nice comments from the girls (pupils)... Organisation and timing were excellent, we shared emails until the day of the event.”

Clara Fernandez, La Retraite School

“I was grateful you were flexible enough to start a bit early... Our Year 9 boys were fully engaged in what you had to say, because of your use of humour and excellent IT... It was an appealing talk that motivates pupils not only to read your book but fiction in general.”

Susan Mulkern, Chichester Boys' High School
