“Tom Palmer is a champion for reluctant readers and works tirelessly to attract children – and particularly boys – to pick up a book”  Marilyn Brocklehurst, Norfolk Children’s Book Centre.

Freckleton School

I am now fully booked with author visits until September 2020.  I am  usually asked to host either my Football Reading Game,  my Rugby Reading Game or my new Historical Fiction workshop. 

I try to bring in issues like Fair Trade, the Arctic  and citizenship into my writing and these can be built into my author visits.

I am proud to support the Premier League Reading Stars scheme, I  am a validated provider of workshops for the Children’s University and I am a Patron of Reading for two schools this year.
