Thomas Taylor is the award-winning author of the outstanding and 'pulse-quickening' novel Malamander and Gargantis, and creator of Eerie-on-Sea. In addition to writing, Thomas is illustrator.

Virtual Visit Details

Thomas uses quirky props and strange beachcombing finds to explain the inspiration for his Erie-on-Sea books, and to illustrate the power of the imagination -- and the sea -- to turn trash into treasure.

He reads extracts from his books if desired, answers children's questions, and gives insights into the working life of an author/illustrator.

He is also happy to stay in touch with a class for any follow up interaction that might be needed (such as judging art or writing competitions).
