11 Dec Visit from Local Author
On Thursday 6th December local author Carla Kovach came to do a presentation with our wonderfully creative students.
Carla is a crime and horror author who grew up and lives in Redditch and actually attended Arrow Vale back in the 1990s. She loved her English Lessons and remembers writing stories at home and how her teacher would read them out. She is now a best-selling author of The Next Girl and Her Final Hour (the first two books in the DI Gina Harte Series published by Bookouture). Carla has also written Whispers Beneath the Pines, To Let, Flame and Meet Me at Marmaris Castle. When Carl is not writing she also co-runs a video production company, writes stage plays and screenplays, and she currently has a horror feature film in production which is due for release in 2019.
Carla gave an extremely insightful presentation into her career as a successful author and provided us with lots of interesting information as to how she got to be where she is. The students were thoroughly engaged and had no issues with asking lots of intriguing and stimulating questions, like what inspired her, and how she found the motivation to sit and write a book? Carla told us that she makes her writing engaging and super descriptive and gave us advice for pursuing a career in writing fiction.
It was wonderful to see so many students immersed in the ideas around writing and developing their own creativity.
