Flint High School: Best-selling author visits school.

One of the country's best-selling ghostwriters and authors visited Flint High School to talk to students about his work. Martin Roach has written in excess of 130 books, including twelve best sellers, on music, celebrity, sport, film, youth culture and, indulging his passion for fast cars, the first book ever on the supercar, the Bugatti Veyron. As a ghostwriter he is commissioned to write books for high profile individuals working closely with them to write their life story. Amongst the plethora of high profile names he has worked with are Olly Murs, The Wanted, Westlife, and David Coulthard. During his visit he spoke to sixth form English students about his career and what his work as a ghostwriter involves. In a separate session with the top achieving Year 9 and 10 English students he talked about the importance of originality in writing to create a unique piece. With both groups he encouraged students to "have a go" and practise their writing be it a blog, e-magazine, or book review, to help develop their own style. He emphasised how much easier it is in this digital world to publish their material.
