A popular young adult novelist shared her expertise and advice with Ipswich High School pupils last week during a special visit.
Lauren James, author of the Next Together series, stopped by at the school on Friday as part of her book signing tour, where she gave a talk on writing tips, characterisation, genre fiction, fan fiction, and the arts and sciences.
The youngsters then enjoyed a book signing with the British author.
The 25-year-old is also a passionate advocate for getting girls into STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects.
Wendy Offord, learning resource centre manager at the school said: “We have had a truly inspirational morning with YA, STEM-linked author, Lauren James.
“The pupils are buzzing with enthusiasm following her talk and are already busily reading the books that they have had signed and hand embossed by Lauren.”
