Congratulations to Emma Carroll on her Publishing Deal

Axe Valley Community College English Teacher Emma Carroll has signed a two-book deal with Faber and Faber to publish her debut work for young people – Frost Hollow Hall.

The novel, aimed at the 9-12 age range, is described as “Downton Abbey with ghosts”

Frost Hollow Hall is due to be published in October next year.  In the meantime Mrs Carroll is gathering ideas for her second book for Faber, which may be about a high wire act over Niagara Falls.

Head Teacher Martin Smith said “Mrs Carroll is a superb teacher who has inspired countless GCSE and A-Level students to be passionate about writing.  We are extremely fortunate to have such talented teachers at our college”
