On Tuesday 18 November, New York Times bestselling Author G.P Taylor is visiting Truro Prep School to speak to Years 4-6.


A motorcyclist and former rock band roadie turned Anglican minister, G.P. Taylor has been hailed as ‘hotter than Potter’ and ‘the new C.S. Lewis’. His first novel, Shadowmancer, reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list in 2004 and has been translated into 48 languages. His other novels include Wormwood (another New York Times bestseller, which was nominated for a Quill book award), The Shadowmancer Returns: The Curse of Salamander Street, Tersias, The Oracle and Mariah Mundi: The Midas Box. Worldwide sales for Taylor’s books now total more than three million copies.


G.P Taylor is a passionate advocate of reading and visits around 250 schools each year talking to some 20,000 children, aiming to get them interested in books. Alongside his talk at Truro Prep School, he will also be signing books after school at 3:30pm in the Dining Room.
