Huge thanks to Ian Hornett, a local author, who took the time to visit Year 6. Ian spent time talking to Mulberry class about what inspired him to write his sci-fi books and he also collected feedback from the children to help him edit the latest book in his series. Ian also gave the children the opportunity to try some creative writing for themselves, following his writing masterclass. The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and felt inspired and excited about writing.
Ian is in the process of writing several books, including 2 sci-fi books for younger readers, a comedy series about a retired female spy called Maggie, and the Quarton trilogy. His first published book, Quarton: The Bridge (described as a pacy sci-fi full of twists and turns, aimed at 12 and above) is available in Red Lion Books in Colchester and on Amazon (search for Quarton).
