I’m available for speaking at schools, doing author talks and writing workshops. I’m happy to speak for ages 8 to 15 (grades 4 to 9) and can do anything from small groups to whole grades.

I can cover a range of topics such as.

  • How to be an author-everything from gathering ideas to storylines.
  • Writing humour/jokes (including stand up comedy)
  • All about Thailand-a quick look at the land of smiles (ideal for harmony day and other multicultural events)
  • The publishing process, from the manuscript to the finished book.
  • Writing stories and entertaining narratives (can be modifed for NAPLAN)
  • Coming up with ideas for stories and characters
  • Multiculturism/Asian Australians in books.

“A huge thank you to Oliver for visiting our school!  His workshops and discussions about writing and first book, Thai-riffic, coupled with his energy and humour have really inspired our students!  We’re very much looking forward to seeing Oliver again next year!” R.Smith, Year 6 English teacher, Sheldon College QLD

“Oliver is not a man of success he is a man of value that makes spine tingling books for children and teenagers.
He is also a five star rated stand-up comedian who makes children laugh, giggle and ROFL (roll over from
laughing) so much that your socks will fall off. He is going to be known at Westmead for being a man everyone
wants to be like in the future. Thank you Oliver! “Eunny, Westmead PS
