Una the dog accompanied author Philip Womack on his visit to Fortismere on Monday 9th November and, as long as the word “squirrel” wasn’t mentioned, sat calmly and enjoyed the attentions of two Year 7 classes who came to work with Philip in the library.  As well as talking about his amazing “Darkening Path” trilogy – the third book is being published next year – Philip talked to the students about how he became a writer (at the age of 4, a story about mice chasing cats, on the bedroom wall) and what inspires him to write.  A quick and very interesting creative writing session followed; little did the students know that they were actually writing in the style of Kafka’s Metamorphosis!
