Thank you to principal Rasshmi Malik of Salwan Public School, Delhi, for inviting me to visit her wonderful school this morning, in association with the Sisterhood of Readers, the brainchild of Ahaana Subberwal of Hong Kong International School here in Hong Kong! After telling the students all about how I became an author and the vital importance of reading lots and lots of books to a happy, healthy and wealthy life, I read my story The Tale of Run Run Rat. And then we had a terrific Q and A session, with some really interesting questions from the kids! I look forward to many future visits to this inspiring school!

Below see Ahaana Subberwal and some members of the Sisterhood of Readers with my book The Tale of Sybil Snake – a tale of female empowerment if ever there was one!

Yesterday I had a fun interview with the fabulous Noreen Mir at RTHK Radio 3 on the 123 Show! We talked all about my upcoming session with the HK Virtual Young Readers Festival, including a very funny and frank video of me and Harry Harrison explaining How We Created the Chinese Calendar Tales, and a Q and A session to follow!  You can listen to it here!
