Thomas Aveling Welcomes Author Justin Somper
Year 7 students were treated to a special visit recently from author Justin Somper. Justin's books include The Vampirates and Allies & Assassins.
The author spent an hour with the students discussing his inspiration for writing the books, the characters, where their own journey began and how they develop within each book.
A number of students also took up the opportunity to purchase a copy of The Vampirates and have it personally signed by our guest Author.
Mrs Peace, our librarian, who organised the event said Justin commented on how engaged the students were and how he liked lively audiences as it showed they were ready to become immersed in the world of Vampirates! Justin was also impressed with their answers and said he would love to work with them again to do a creative writing workshop.
