Accompanying his account of how he got started as a writer with dozens of his own intricately drawn illustrations, Mr Cornish held the pupils captivated. Each session concluded with a detailed and at times humourous question and answer session. The author signed copies of his Monster Blood Tattoo trilogy during Recess, posing for photos with excited students. After an invitation-only lunch with lucky pupils Mr Cornish led a unique writing workshop with a Year 10 Extension English class. Students left this session buzzing with ideas for stories, novels and worlds of their own to build. D.M Cornish is the author of the well received fantasy series, Monster Blood Tattoo originally published by Omnibus Books here in Adelaide.
