WRITER: After more than 15 years of working as a writer in the corporate world, Andrea Gallagher has written two picture books, Superstar Grandmas, and Mega-rad Grandads.
Her inspiration was to write about modern grandparents in a way that redressed old-fashioned stereotypes. Creating fun rhymes about real-life grandparents from her own world: using a perspective that kids could enjoy and learn from, packaged into vibrant books that adults would enjoy sharing.
SPEAKER: Andrea has many years of experience speaking to audiences, large and small, and enjoys opportunities to promote positive images of aging and connecting different generations.
Through speaking engagements and workshop bookings, she enjoys helping primary-school aged children to put their own grandparents into the ‘Superstar Grandma’ and ‘Mega-rad Grandad’ frame, as they develop their literacy skills.
And after teaching writing skills to adults in the corporate sector for many years, Andrea has also adapted these insights to share her secrets with high-school-aged students about how to bring their writing to life and achieve more with their written words.
