My school event is entitled You Have To Start Somewhere. The aim is to communicate to students that, no matter their goals in life, the secret to success is hard work, perseverance and learning from their mistakes. The talk is based on my touring experiences with rock/pop band The Lightyears, which took us from the schoolyard to Wembley Stadium and eventually inspired me to become a novelist. The event is a mixture of live music, slides and anecdotes, and I like to encourage regular input from the students, where possible!
