From living with the Kazakh Eagle Hunters in Mongolia to conjuring up secret kingdoms in her writing shed, bestselling author Abi Elphinstone will talk about the real-life adventures and accidental daydreams behind her stories. She’ll be speaking about her latest book, The Crackledawn Dragon – a voyage across an enchanted land full of silver whales, fire krakens, and underwater palaces – and showing pupils how easy it is to leap into stories of their own.
Abi Elphinstone is a bestselling and multi-award shortlisted children's author. Her books include The Unmapped Chronicles (Everdark, Rumblestar, Jungledrop, The Crackledawn Dragon), Sky Song, The Dreamsnatcher trilogy and, for younger readers, The Snow Dragon.
