Hello 😊 

My name is Megan Rix and I’m Knightsfield’s new Reading Patron. I met some of you with my dogs Bella and Freya when I came to visit at the end of April. Freya loved meeting everyone and we are both looking forward to coming back to see you soon!

February Blog – The Mystery of the Lost Chicken

I didn’t win the IBC Award 🥲 but I’m happy to say ‘The Mystery of the Lost Chicken’ is still going to be translated into British Sign Language this year! Woohoo – so happy. I’ve been taking my level 4 BSL exams. Hope I pass 🤞. Have you got exams this year?

March Blog – New Book!

Hello everyone, I hope you are well and enjoying the Spring. I’ve been busy working on a new book. Have you read any good books recently? I’ve been reading lots of history books about how people lived in Georgian times. I’m glad I didn’t live back then!

April Blog – Animal Stories

I love reading stories about animals.  My favourite was about a pig called Esther who inspired the Happily Ever Esther Animal Sanctuary. What’s your favourite animal? Mine are my dogs, Freya and Ellie. What’s your favourite animal story?

May Blog – Story Ideas

I’m asked how I get story ideas but I’ve always had more story ideas than I could ever write. Sometimes a picture will give me an idea – I like writing stories inspired by a picture like this one. How do you get your story ideas?
