When I first moved to Dorset, I volunteered at the Dorchester Literary Festival as a way of feeling part of the bookish world. I spent many happy hours ushering people to their seats, fetching tea in the Green Room and, later down the line, helping out with the festival’s social media. At the time I dreamed of appearing at the festival as an author in my own right and now, at last, my chance has come! I’ll be talking to students at Thomas Hardye School and Purbeck School about Dead Lucky, social media, and what it does to our brains on 17 October 2023. Can’t wait!
