Reading events and school visits
As a former teacher and accomplished public speaker, Veronica has given readings of her books in many different settings and led school sessions to promote students' interest in reading and writing.
As well as covering the process of writing a book these sessions also give the opportunity for discussion of the social issues included in the novels. Secrets addresses issues of bullying, use of social media and discrimination, while Watching includes an authentic portrayal of people-trafficking in the UK today.
Sessions are adapted for the particular age-group: Y5/Y6, Key Stage 3 and above.
A scaled down model of the setting of Secrets is also available to accompany Veronica on school visits, with figures of the characters in the novel.
