Children’s author Rachel Hamilton will be signing copies of her first book “The Case of the Exploding Loo” which has had great reviews.
Rachel will be signing in WH Smiths on Saturday (July 5) from 2pm followed by a reading in Pizza Express. Rachel splits her time between Dubai and the Grantham area where her mother lives. Rachel is a former Grantham College student and has studied at Oxford and Cambridge and has worked as a teacher and in an ad agency. She is married with two children aged nine and 11. Rachel said she had wanted to write a book since she was four-year-old. She is also a former winner of a creative writing competition run by the Grantham Journal.
On Wednesday, Rachel visited Caythorpe Primary School where she spoke to the children. In her talk she spoke of how reading helped change the behaviour of children while she was a teacher (see the video)
