Author Margaret Mulligan

Author Margaret Mulligan, whose novel ‘Katy Parker and the House that Cried’ is published by Bloomsbury (who also published the Harry Potter books), visited Blakehill and spent time with the children reading and discussing her book – as well as signing copies!

She gave year 5 some fantastic advice, particularly with regards to perseverance! We learned that even a published author will suffer numerous rejections of their work as well as having to improve it countless times through re-drafts! In addition, she also gave the children lots of tips on what to include in their stories to make people want to read them!
