Author, CJ Daugherty, visits and enthrals Year 9s with stories of her time as a crime reporter and investigative journalist!

Three lucky Year 9 classes had a wonderful afternoon with CJ Daugherty, author of the thrilling and popular Night School series.  A former crime reporter, political writer and investigative journalist CJ held the audience enthralled with grim, frightening and exciting anecdotes of her career in Texas (“Homicide! How I miss it!”) and later in London working with spies and the British Government.  The students asked lots of interesting questions and discovered that CJ is an avid reader who feels that books and reading have been a hugely important aspect of her life.   CJ was accompanied by her husband, film and television director and editor Jack Jewers, so the Year 9s were also able to enjoy some amazing book trailers created for her books.
