PUPILS at Ellon Academy received their latest instalment of a series of author talks on Monday, after a visit from Barry Hutchison.

The visit comes at the end of a series of visits by local authors to give youngsters at the academy an insight into what it takes to write a book.

Barry, who hails from Fort William, writes fiction for youngsters, including the award winning Invisible Fiends and Afterworlds series. He spoke about the work involved with being an author, including the effort which went into his most recent book, the 13th Horseman, which takes a light-hearted look at what life might be like as one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
