I don't believe I have, but I would love to someday! It would be my absolute dream to meet J.K. Rowling since she practically inspired to continue and improve my writing.

I met the poet Allan Ginsberg at a poetry reading. I'm pretty sure he was high. And I was not impressed.

Way back in high school (we won't say exactly how way back) David Fleming author of "Summertime" was our English and creative writing teacher. As a teenager, I was not impressed, I had other things on my mind. But he would read his books to us and then give us "crazy" (to a teenager anyway) writing assignments. In hindsight, I see what a great opportunity that was. But at the time, writing was the last thing on my teenage mind.

Unfortunately I have never been so lucky. Realistically I would have to travel to a different part of the world if I want to make that happen.

We often had meet & greets at our schools where you can get an autograph book of that author. My school did it quite a few times every year.

Sam Angus came in to talk to my Year 8s about the writing process and her book, Hero. She was fantastic and had every single child hanging on to her every word.
