Berwickshire High School pupils got a taste of the literary life last week.
Author Justin Richards visited the school to give a talk and a short reading to more than 200 S2 and S3 pupils.
Justin has written more than 50 books, including some spin-off novels based on Doctor Who. He is currently Creative Consultant for the BBC Books range of Doctor Who novels.
Justin read from his latest novel for young adults, ‘The Wolfstone Curse’, and also showed pupils the book’s accompanying android app.
School librarian Ian Bain said the visit, as part of the Borders Book Festival, had been a great success.
