We had a visit from author Jackie Burke. It was really interesting to hear how she began writing and all of her ideas. She described all the characters in her books and told us how each one was chosen.
Jackie has written four books so far in the Grindlewood series: 'A spell, a quest and the bravest dog in the world' 'The Secret Scroll' 'The Queen's Quest' 'Zora's Revenge' and her fifth one is coming out really soon.
We loved hearing how the cat Teddy and dog Timber in her books were inspired from a real cat and dog from her past. Jackie read from some of her books, we had the opportunity to ask questions and received lovely posters. Everybody received a lovely bookmark that was specially signed from Jackie.
It was great fun and really interesting and we look forward to meeting Jackie Burke again soon.
