As a former specialist children's bookseller of ten years, I am hugely passionate about encouraging a love of reading in children. During my visits I share the unlikely story of how I became an author, and take students on a voyage through the mysterious world of my bestselling Uncommoners books. I offer two events: an interactive presentation designed for school assemblies, and a smaller creative writing workshop aimed at helping students unlock their imaginations. Both of these are suitable for ages 7 – 11.

"All our children thoroughly enjoyed Jennifer’s visit and there was such a positive buzz around the school. I even had one girl in my class come to school dressed as Ivy from the Uncommoners yesterday - she was clearly inspired."
