Forthcoming events

Edinburgh Book Festival

At The New York Times Theatre (in Sculpture Court), Edinburgh on 31/08/2021 11:00 am

From living with the Kazakh Eagle Hunters in Mongolia to conjuring up secret kingdoms in my writing shed, I will be talking about the real-life adventures and accidental daydreams behind my books and showing you how easy it is to leap into stories of your own. My latest book, The Crackledawn Dragon, whisks you away on a voyage across a magical sea kingdom which empowers you to battle climate change and fight to save your own world in the process.

This event is live and has been created especially for school pupils for our Baillie Gifford Schools Gala Day, but it’s also enjoyable for children and families to watch.
