How it started...
Imagine a small child sitting at a desk, with the tick tock of the clock echoing in the exam room. The child's little heart is beating furiously, pencil gripped tight and the mind blank. Even worse – imagine it’s your child in that room! You'd love to help, be there... that's exactly how I felt when my daughter ran out of her exam in tears...
My daughter was 10 when, tears in her eyes, she ran into my arms at the school gates. She had to write a story. And in the exam room she froze – couldn’t think of a word to write ↓
That’s when I realised I had to do everything I could to help her.
The school was excellent, but teachers were spending more time with government paperwork, regulations, league tables, constant tests and monitoring.
I couldn't change the education system - but this was my child's future - I had to do everything in my power to help her.
And so the Workbook was born. It started as loose sheets and built over the years. It's now gone through 3 children and their friends and been constantly updated to keep it current. I've now pulled all the pages together and made it available to buy in 2 bound manuals.
How it's working
My 10 year old daughter is now 27 and a doctor from one of the best universities. And I know, (because she’s told me) that the skills she learnt completing the workbook, gave her a huge advantage during her school and university life. She still applies these skills to her writing today.
Writing with dyslexia
My second daughter was diagnosed dyslexic when she was 7 and writing in a logical way was tough. But she put in hard work and persevered. And by using this step by step approach she learnt to plan her written work and became competent at writing interesting and attention-grabbing stories.
Earlier this year she passed her psychology degree with honours and is starting her teacher training in September.
My youngest son is still at school and more a science guy than arts. So it was important we worked on his English. He also used this workbook before his entrance exam. It paid off, he won a scholarship and his essay writing skills are now wonderful. His handwriting still needs work, but his creative writing is witty, entertaining and engaging and he gets great marks.
What age is the workbook best for?
Can your son or daughter read the passage below?
"Holding their breath, Joe and Pip crept silently towards the bedroom door. Hearts pounding, they carefully turned the handle and pushed. The door burst open and inside was..."
If you think the answer is yes, then I guarantee he or she will benefit from this course - no matter what their age - guaranteed order here.
Why can I guarantee the workbook? Because the techniques are proven with my children and their friends. The exercises and examples show how to write creatively - how to enjoy stories and word play. And they can be learnt at any stage in life.
My eldest started at 10, my other two at 9 - they used them preparing for entrance exams (age 10-11) and carried on referring to the books for their secondary school homework and GSCEs (age 11-16).
I also have mums and dads who have used the books in their work.
"I wasn't expecting this - but the book improved my writing too!" A.H. Mum of two.
For the cost of a tutor for an hour, I have workbooks that grow with my son throughout his school life.

How it works?
It works by experiencing results straight away.
Immediately they'll be creating sentences that will seize the attention of the reader. In the first exercise they'll learn how to take a plain sentence like this.
"The sausages cooked in the pan"
And through an easy routine (I call "Swap Out") they'll be able to transform the sentence...
---> "The fat sausages sizzled and spat in the scalding pan."
So much more interesting and evocative!
And as they work through the examples they'll increase their word play.
→ "The juicy hot dogs steamed in the bubbling water."
I found these immediate results boost confidence. You will too. And soon your child will be adding smells and sounds to emotionally hook the reader.
Will it really take just 7 hours?
Yes. You'll see the benefits straight away - within the first 20 minutes. And within 7 hours you'll see a permanent improvement in your child's ability to create imaginative stories.
Of course, this will just be the start.
Creative writing gives a lifetime of pleasure and my children still refer to their books. Maybe, one day, they'll continue with their own children.
This workbook is successful because it encourages constant exploration. These growing creative writers will look and listen and smell sausages differently (seriously!). They will observe more - how people walk - how things look. They'll want to discover new ways to describe what they see and smell and feel. And it will be fun.
As a parent you have the chance to transform your child’s life
The whole story
The lessons show how to write a story from beginning to end. How to write a plan using mind maps so they'll even start to feel motivated and excited at the prospect of writing essays.
I've also taken the most popular exam story titles and written introductory paragraphs to start them off, so your child can practice until creative writing becomes a pattern or habit in their thinking process.
The "Swap Out" word game makes it fun to make interesting sentences. And now I'm adding my own favourite words to the list.
