Nature writing

My name is Luke Temple. As a children's author I am passionate about getting children engaged with reading and writing. It is sad that I'm not able to visit schools to do this at the moment.

To help bring a bit of excitement to children's 'home schooling', I have:

  • Made my most popular book, Mutating Mansion, completely free to download.
  • Created an activity pack for KS2, 'Luke Temple's Writing Toolbox'. This contains lots of the tools I use to help make my books really exciting, fun and scary to read. I hope children can use the tools to have a go at their own writing.

The book and activity pack can be downloaded from www.luketemple.co.uk/toolbox
