A talk to 1st year students at
SCOIL DARA, KILCOCK
"I feel like Olive's talk helped a lot of people. The minute the talk finished I wanted to start writing my own story. The extract from the book was really interesting and I wanted to read more"
"I thoroughly enjoyed Olive's talk. She provided some great writing tips and I know these will help me in the future. Your book was very good and I wanted to purchase a copy and read some more"
"I enjoyed the talk a lot. I really enjoyed the part when Olive read some of her own novel"
Overall, the feedback lead me to believe the talk you gave was very informative, engaging and entertaining. The only negative feedback (everyone agreed) was that it was too short. They had such a good time, the students would have loved to interact with you more. Thanks once again Olive for the very positive experience. Any exposure to writers in the flesh is a bonus to their own writing and future exams.

'I really enjoyed reading your books because I found them interesting. My favourite character is Simon because he is in a different world to everyone else and I think that is cool. I am really looking forward to the next book.'
