Karen McCombie

Wowser, what a busy day we’ve had today. Aside from the Family Learning Project, Bring Daddy to Story-time and Creative Writing Club (which is our normal Saturday), we were lucky enough to welcome Karen McCombie into Chicken and Frog. Karen signed books and talked about life as a writer. This would have been enough, but then she very kindly joined our Creative Writing Club and jolly well inspired them!



Top tips for avoiding DULL writing, coupled with a mammoth Q & A session resulted in a group of highly enthused young writers (plus me – not quite so young, but certainly inspired).


We’d like to say a very clucky and hoppy thank-you to Karen and her lovely daughter Millie, for taking a mosey on down to sunny Brentwood. Cluck, ribbit!


The independent children's bookshop and tuition centre in the heart of Brentwood, Essex. Owned and run by Mr Frog & Mrs Chicken (happily married book-nerds), with the sole aim of bringing high quality books and tuition to our community.
