Hey hey hey!

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

In this episode, Tom Palmer, author of over 30+ books including Roy of the Rovers, Football Academy, and many historical fiction novels, joins us in the clubhouse to talk about his journey as a children’s author.

Tom and I talk about finding ways to read growing up, learning to write stories with confidence, and running school visits online in the current covid climate.

Tom was an amazing guest and we are super grateful he was able to join us on the show.

Enjoy!
