Jenny McLachlan – Author Visit

The final event of this year’s Wessex School Literary Festival was a visit from debut author Jenny McLachlan, the day after her book ‘Flirty Dancing’ had been published.Jenny McLachlan

Talking to an audience of over 70 year 7 & 8 girls, Jenny told us how she’d got inspiration for her book from various events in her life and from friends and family.

Jenny read an extract from her book before answering a number of interesting questions.  Her aim as an author is to be popular with her readers not an award-winner (like Jacqueline Wilson).  The winner of the competition to ask the best/most interesting question was Ellie Sawbridge who won a signed copy of ‘Flirty Dancing’.

Pupils were able to buy copies of the book and get them signed by Jenny.

We wish Jenny every success with her new career as an author.
