Thank you so much for your visit. I’ve had lots of feedback from the students and they had a great time.
The boys who took part in the workshop were in the next day for their library lesson. They were asking me for your books, and telling their teacher about the stories they had written! It was amazing, a very positive experience for them.
Having booked Mark for our finale to Book Week I wasn’t sure what to expect. We are a secondary boys school and our lads can be a tough audience but I was blown away by the impression Mark made on them. Even the toughest, most street wise Year 9 class sat enthralled whilst Mark was speaking. Having booked Mark for our finale to Book Week I wasn’t sure what to expect.

“We have had a phenomenal response to the day you spent with us last week. It has been amazing how many boys (and some girls) who normally never come anywhere near the library if they can avoid it, have been literally queuing up for your books. One parent I have spoken to said her son, who as far as she could remember has never admitted to willingly reading a book in his life, pestered her so much for a copy of ‘Imperial Spy’ when he arrived home from school after your talk that she felt she just had to go out and buy the book there and then.
Many of the staff at the school, myself included, wish to pass on their thanks for giving us a truly inspirational day and we look forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future.”
