If you're looking for an author to visit your school, Contact-an-Author is a good source of information.


You can also contact me by email:


I will answer all emails, usually within a few days. However, please don't ask me to read and assess work in progress or work you are thinking of submitting to publishers; I cannot offer this service. There are literary consultants who, for a fee, will read your work and advise you on its suitability (or not) for publication. Information is readily available in The Writers' and Artists' Yearbook, or in magazines such as Writers' News and Writing Magazine.


 I also recommend that you read Writing Children's Fiction: a Writers' and Artists' Companion if your query is about submitting work or seeking a consultant. You may well find the advice or guidance you need there.


Finally: if you do contact me by email, please be sure to spell my name correctly - otherwise Linda Newberry or Linda Newbury will get your message, instead of me, and they're getting rather fed up with it ...
