Want me to visit your school, library or festival?

Interactive Assemblies & Workshops     The Suitcase Puppet Theatre     Multimedia Virtual Visits     Reaching Reluctant Readers

Hana Suitcase Box.png

I am thrilled to be open for event bookings and school visits. In fact, meeting readers and inspiring them to write is my favourite part of being an author!


My suitcase puppet theatre and I have travelled to schools, libraries & festivals across the UK and Europe - as far as Berlin and Northern Italy! We have also beamed into hundreds of classrooms using the latest streaming software.

Let me bring my writing laboratory to you, so we can study the science of writing the perfect mystery story, aka Mysteriology. Or allow me to rewind the clock, all the way back to 1892, where one of my ancestors (also called Hana Tooke, curiously) discovered a secret formula called The Magic Three. A formula that never fails to get a story idea started!

All my events are interactive (including the puppet show) and designed to engage even the most reluctant readers and writers (which was me too, once!).


‘The children and staff have been raving about her all day! Our English planning will now change because Hana was so fabulous.’
