This is a fun talk about the literary career of my Border Terrier, Rolo, arguably the naughtiest dog in the country. It traces its beginnings in Rolo’s everyday antics which lead to his dog blog,, and some early magazine articles such as ‘I should have bought a Guinea Pig’. In a quirk of fate, Rolo was awarded his own magazine column which was quickly followed by his first book ‘The Last Rolo’ and, building on the success of this, a second, ‘Sit, Stay, Roll Over’. Rolo, like all famous authors, has been interviewed on the radio, and in the press, but has managed to keep his paws firmly on the ground

About Helen Stockton

I am a freelance writer, best known for writing as my dog, an idiosyncratic, elderly and badly behaved Border Terrier. He has his own blog, magazine column, Twitter and Facebook accounts, together with two books written in his own voice. I have a second dog, also a Border Terrier, who is finding his way as a literary apprentice. I am a speaker, included by West Kent and East Sussex WIs, in their speakers' directories, and offer a range of talks about writing and animal writing, although the most popular is 'Rolo the Border Terrier, a Literary Dog'! I am a eloquent, engaging and entertaining speaker, happy delivering to small or large groups, by advanced pre-booking, or a relatively short notice subject to availibility. Check out my website for details of my talks and testimonials.
