We were delighted to welcome author M G Leonard on 11 May, who is the author of the hugely popular Beetle Boy Trilogy. She spoke to the boys in years 5-8 in two sessions about the many aspects of her work as a writer. Before becoming an author Maya worked in the National Theatre, so the skills she acquired came in handy as she entertained our audience with her description of how she made the change from the world of theatre to become an author.  We also learned many fascinating facts about Creepy Crawlies which she used to be terrified of, but she has now seen the light and is an avid conservationist.
