Parus the baby blue tit is a hero in a story I wrote for one of my sons, The Song Birds of Lane End Garden. Imagine my delight when he turned

up on my friend’s doorstep the other week! I will try and work out how to put the story on my website for you to download. Watch this space.

I have been in my editing cave putting the final tweaks to The Witches Punchbowl this week. I’m about to do a final read through and must try and delete every single word that isn't needed - you'll be amazed how many ‘ands’ and ‘buts’ and ‘actuallys’ we can do without! Look at that last sentence - did the word single add anything?

There are new photos on the website gallery - some starting points for your own stories I hope.

I have had to disconnect the forum. I’m disappointed but there's a glitch with Adobe and you can't contribute from an iPod or an iPhone. I haven't done a survey but guess more than fifty percent of you use those gadgets! I'll let you know when they fix the glitch

That’s all for now …

Our Castle By The Sea

Growing up in a lighthouse, 11-year-old Pet's world has been one of storms, secret tunnels, and stories about sea monsters.  


Teachers - have you discovered @BookPenPals? A new initiative pairing authors & illustrators with schools to make reading recommendations via postcards. They're pretty oversubscribed, but if you're interested it might be worth getting your name on the waiting list. They have some fabulous authors on board.
