Tim was phenomenal! His sessions were well-pitched to his audience, who were all highly engaged for the entire hour. Tim left the students wanting more and we cannot keep his books on our shelves - the reservation list is LONG!

Tim was great. He was well-prepared and encouraging to the students. He has a genuine, relatable style and was able to speak to a wide range of year levels in an age-appropriate fashion.

Tim's presentation was entertaining and engaging. He had students from yrs 3, 4 5 and 6 in the palm of his hand and his books have been unavailable in our library ever since. His teaching background made his presentation very applicable to teaching story writing skills as well as creative ideas for story writing. Our teachers were especially impressed by the practical nature of Tim's presentation. Absolutely worth every penny.
