Amazing Author

Author Joseph Delaney visits Westholme

Westholme gave a warm welcome to fantasy fiction author Joseph Delaney earlier today in the Croston Theatre.

Joseph talked to Junior and Senior School pupils about ‘A New Darkness’ which is the first in a new trilogy called ‘The Starblade Chronicles’.

Joseph told the pupils how he his inspiration to start writing came from reading Treasure Island and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Students found it interesting to know that many of the Spook’s books are based in Lancashire and are inspired by local ghost stories and legends.

We would like to thank Joseph for taking the time to come and speak to our pupils.
