Virtual Visit Details

Calling all intrepid time-travellers!

Take a trip with Ally back into the past to discover how she became an author, learn what real-life famous events, places and people spark her ideas and hear her read from one of her books.

Choose from the murky world of plotting and spies in Black Powder, a dangerous wartime mission to save a piece of priceless Anglo-Saxon treasure in The Buried Crown, or the colour and intrigue of the Tudor Court in The Queen’s Fool (warning: hold on to your head!)

The session includes a 10 minute Q&A.

Please note: Ally is very happy to discuss alternative dates should those listed not suit you.
