My busy year!

I realise it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything – almost a year, in fact. This is due in part to being very busy with work.

This year I’ve worked on an amazing variety of books, covering subjects as strange and diverse as fire, soap, money, poo, vegetables, snot, tea, sugar, salt, chocolate and bees (which is a delicious combo when spread on toast, by the way!). I’ve also written on more traditional subjects like the Tudors, space, great inventors, archaeology and art.

On the fiction front, I wrote an Anglo-Saxon story called the Golden Amulet and a scary fantasy story called Nightmare Island, both for Fiction Express, and I’m currently working on a new series set in Shakespearean times for Salariya.

As I said – busy! 

Also, World Book Week is coming up fast, and I’ll be visiting lots of schools doing workshops and talks,  all of which requires preparation time.

And if that weren’t enough, you may have noticed that I have a new website. That’s right! I thought it was about time for a change. It’s taken a fair few hours burning the midnight oil getting it just right, but I’m pretty happy with it now. My thanks to Phil Burrows of Novel Websites for creating the site for me. I heartily recommend him to any other authors out there.

Okay, enough talk. I’d better get back to work!
