Debi Gliori's headshot

I am an illustrator and writer of over 80 books, veteran school visitor, festival eventer, and public speaker. Over time, I've been asked:

The answer to these and other questions can be obtained by inviting me to come an visit your school, library, festival, castle or garden. I will talk, draw, tell stories, show illustrations with Powerpoint slides but, most of all, I will do my absolute best to enthuse, invigorate and inspire you and the next generation of readers, writers and illustrators.
