A group of year seven and eight students from The St Leonards Academy recently enjoyed a visit from Kate O’Hearn, author of the series Shadow of the Dragon, Pegasus and Valkyrie.

Kate chatted to the group about their reading and writing preferences and set them a task of writing a short extract for a horror/thriller. Cathy Stafford, academy librarian, said: “Kate was fantastic and the students warmed to her straight away.”
