Author Simon Packham has written a number of young adult books including Only we Know, Trust Games and Firewallers, all of which address being a teenager in the twenty-first century.
During a recent visit, he gave an entertaining talk to Year 10 students from Red Maids’ and Redland High about the process of writing and editing.
He described how he uses notebooks to continually jot down random thoughts and ideas. He also said that regular swimming sessions help his creative process and also account for a number of drownings in his books!
The girls all thoroughly enjoyed spending time together and look forward to many more shared literary events.
