Simon Haynes - Author Appearances

I visit schools and libraries across the metro area (Perth, Western Australia). For the past 7 or 8 years I've spoken at various venues for Children's Book Week events, including three appearances at the All Saints Kids Lit festival.

I usually talk to groups from primary school years 5-7, which match the age range of my Hal Junior novels.

I talk about the life of a writer, share a few hair-raising anecdotes from my childhood, and generally promote writing and reading. Sessions last anything from 45 to 90 minutes, and I charge the standard ASA author rates.
