Author Peter J Murray Visits Y7 at Northfield


Year 7 students were in for a treat when fantasy and ghost story writer Peter J Murray dropped into Northfield for the afternoon to promote his new book ‘Poppy Warrior’.

Y7 students were captivated as Pete described the ghostly silhouette of a soldier standing among poppies edging the school car park and hollow sounding footsteps in the school corridors. This was just the start of a series of spooky events to befall Josh Palmer at his new school. He must stand brave alongside his supportive twin sister, Jess.

Killing the enemy in a computer game may be one thing but facing the real life horror of trench warfare in World War 1 may well be another!

Pete returned the following day to sell copies of his new book and signed posters to an eager crowd of students awaiting him in the Y7 building. This was Pete’s second successful visit to Northfield and one Y7 boy asked him when was he coming back to talk about his other books? After selling in excess of 80 books, this might just become an annual event!
