Hazel has become known for her entertaining talks and readings with harp accompaniment. As well as events in bookshops and libraries, she has taken part in several literary festivals. She is always happy to chat about her books at virtual or live events, and might sometimes be persuaded to sing her song about Penguins ('Waddling On') or her song in praise of Books ('Books are Cool') .


She also gives workshops full of practical tips for budding writers. She has taught writing at Swanwick Writers' Summer School and Taunton Live, and mentored budding writers at Winchester Writers' Weekend.
