Contact Me

For professional/business enquiries, my agent is Jessica Hare of The Agency (London) Limited.

You can reach me directly by emailing finn [at] finnlongman [dot] com.

Reader questions and comments are probably best directed to my inbox on Tumblr (you don’t need an account to ask questions, and anonymous asks are turned on). I answer all questions publicly by default; you’ll need to be logged in if you’d prefer a private response, but in any case, email may be a better option.

Author visits (to schools etc)

I’m available to book for school visits! For schools in Cambridge, I can do visits in person, COVID regulations and circumstances permitting; for those further afield, a Zoom visit may be more practical. Please contact me at the email address above to discuss options.

I can tailor my talks to the age of the pupils and the size of the group. Some possible topics:

  • My writing process and the story behind The Butterfly Assassin, including where I got my ideas from and how they developed over time
  • Overcoming perfectionism as a writer/creator, aka “writing bad books is good for you, actually”
  • Writing technique like worldbuilding and character development

Talks about writing and perfectionism can be suitable for any secondary school students; talks about The Butterfly Assassin specifically may be more suitable for year ten and above, since the book is aimed at older readers (14+).

If your school has a tight budget, please contact me and I’ll see what I can do about working with you on this. For general guidance on rates, see the Society of Authors’ page for guidance on rates and fees.
