Welcome to my website!
Summer is here. At last my vegetables are growing and the flowers in the garden look lovely. I am busy with school visits and markets and writing.
Happy times to you all!
It was a huge honour to be asked to speak at Linton’s bi-annual festival, May 11th. I had a great audience and we talked about everything from log jams on the Gatineau River in Quebec to Anglo Saxon poetry. Ruth Keys, the librarian at the college, was delighted. “You could have heard a pin drop,” she said.

The Friends of Leominster Library kindly asked me and my husband, writer Sam Lewellyn, to talk about our books.
It was a lovely evening and we were very pleased to offer our support to our local libraries and hopefully to libraries all over the country.

The International School of Stuttgart was pleased to host Mrs. Karen Wallace as our guest author for Book Week in March, 2012. During the three days Mrs. Wallace was with us, she presented her work to students in the Early Years through Middle Years grades. She prepared carefully and thoughtfully for our students, sending ahead all multimedia materials so that we could test the technology in advance. We found Mrs. Wallace to be an engaging, dynamic visitor who brought the magic of reading and writing books into our school.
