I spend WAY TOO MUCH time sat in front of my computer screen so...


I'd love to come 

and say hello!

I have lots of experience of visiting schools, libraries and festivals.  I can talk to small groups or huge groups, run writing workshops, give readings, sit on a panel and - with a little pre-planning - tailor my day to suit you.  I am also a qualified English teacher and have many years of experience teaching GCSE and A Level; I can help your students sharpen their writing skills in readiness for their exams, creative coursework or controlled assessment.  Here's what other schools have said:

"Hayley’s visit was a huge success. She enthused Year 7 boys and girls with her lively and hilarious presentation, and I was really thrilled to see students working feverishly to produce haikus in the workshop sessions. I would highly recommend Hayley if you’re considering an author visit."

- Amanda Balaam, Copleston High School, Ipswich

"Lively, fun and inspirational, Hayley engages students from the start of a workshop right through to the end, with hilarious readings from her novels, character creation and plot ideas on the way. Students get a real kick out of these sessions - and so do I!" 
- Kim Russell, English Teacher, Stalham High School, Norfolk

"Thank you so much for giving your time to our students and for giving them something fantastic to talk about for the next few years! A fantastic event from a superb and much-loved author.
- Kirsty Price, Whitchurch High School, Cardiff

Subject to availability, I can now make a visit any day of the week and will consider travelling to any location - even if that's in Timbuktu.
