8S2 are skyping Andrew Taylor in Australia today!

Andrew Taylor (author of Meteorite Strike series) will be speaking to 8S2 today about his new science fiction thriller, The Adjusters.

Click here to read the first intreguing chapter.

As he is in Australia, it will be via Skype. We are hoping to find out where he got the idea from (The Doctors in Newton have a sinister medical centre on the hill, where they use a procedure called the “adjustment” for kids who don’t fit in), how does he build his characters and how does he write successfully from a teenagers point of view.

Skyping with jack Heath!

Another first for the Library: a Skype event with Australian author, Jack Heath and Year 7!  7Q2 succeeded in being the top borrowing group of last term, taking over 200 books out of the library to read. As a treat they were invited to LB1 to Skype with the author of Money Run.

Even though it was near Jack’s bedtime and we hadn’t even got to morning break we made contact and were enthralled by Jack’s breathless descriptions of how he became a writer (from the age of 6!). Luckily he paused for breath occasionally, and for questions. Now 7Q2 are passing round copies of Money Run and are eagerly awaiting his new book, Hit List early next year.
