I was so honoured to be included in the Self Publishing Show's 'Spotlight' podcast this week. Mark Dawson is an author I really look up to and have learnt so much from on my journey so far. I'll pop the episode below so you can give it a listen. I applied for his SPF Foundation grant for 2019 and was one of the finalists even though I didn't win, so that's a resource that I definitely can recommend. I also took his Self Publishing 101 course and am a patron of the show because it's a brilliant resource for any new (and more experienced) authors.

This week I had the honour of visiting a lovely primary school in Wales and speaking with 6 classes between the ages of 5-11, I even learnt a couple of words of Welsh! I love visiting schools and sharing my passion for literacy, STEM, and exploration.
Here are some of the photos that the teachers posted on Twitter. FYI, I visit schools through School Speakers, am enhance DBS checked, and proceeds from any speaking events (and my books) helps support my environmental and STEM education charity Oceans Project which provides free, online education to young people worldwide who are denied access to school because of things like gender, poverty, natural disaster, war, and disability.
