World Book Day 2013: Visiting Author

Margaret began by telling us about her life. 
She gave us tips on writing a book and then read us a chapter from her book.

 On Wednesday 6th March our English teacher Miss Carey invited Margaret Scott, a local author, to our school. Margaret has just published her first novel “Between You & Me”.

Sarah Henry presents Margaret with a bunch of flowers on behalf of the class.
After her book reading we had a question and answer session where we asked her where her inspiration came from and what types of books she enjoys herself. She gave us a copy of her book as a prize for whoever could write the best opening paragraph of a novel in class the following day. Eleanor Younge won the novel on Thursday.

TYD would like to thank Margaret for giving us an intriguing and informative insight into her life and writing a book. We would also like to thank Miss Carey for organizing the visit. Margaret has secured a three book deal with Poolbeg Publishers and we hope to see her next novel on the shelves in the coming months.
