Hey hey hey!

Welcome back to this week’s episode of the Big Kids Book Club.

This episode, Vashti Hardy, author of Brightstorm Series and the Blue Peter award-winning Wildspark, joins us in the clubhouse to talk about her journey as a children’s author.

Vashti and I catch up on writing stories that create a spark of adventure, winning the award of a lifetime, and sneaking in creative writing journals into every lesson!

Vashti was an amazing guest and we are super grateful she was able to join us on the show.
Enjoy!
