I was really pleased when a class in the Convent of Mercy National School got in touch with my publishers to ask if I would agree to do a big interview with their class as they had all read my books and had a mountain of questions to ask me. Teacher Rachael Leinster helped to set it all up and I was absolutely delighted to take part in such a brilliantly organised interview.
There were all types of question for me about the books and my writing. A few of the girls had written diary entries from the point of view as a character during the famine and read them to me , believe me there is a lot of writing talent in that that class. I really enjoyed chatting to everyone and answering all their questions. Well done to all the girls in the Mercy National School in Belturbet!
