It was lovely to meet Marita Conlon McKenna when she spent the morning with us in school.  Marita told us about her early life in Greystones.  She said that her Mum and herself loved books and reading but her Dad and sister didn't!  Marita's nickname in school was "bookworm".

When we moved on to question time, we asked what inspired her when she was writing her books.  She was inspired by many things; stories she read as a child, stories in the news and stories from life.

Marita told us how great it is to be a writer.  She tries to write every day and loves writing books for children and adults.  She inspired us as well.  I think it was an amazing visit.  We loved it.  We even got her autograph.
