My manuscript edit is over and the fourth draft has gone to test readers! I feel bereft - it’s like setting a favourite pet free and hoping it will come back! The good thing is that I can now focus on some of my other

duties that I have been neglecting - Instagram, blogging, promoting my other novel and finalising the plans for my next children’s story. Before that I’m going to polish up The Songbirds From Lane End Garden and make it available, chapter by chapter, to followers on Instagram. Tell your friends to follow me if they’d like to join the fun. Watch out for the details on Instagram and please do let me know what you think of the story!

Another exciting initiative I’m about to get going on is The Book Fairies which will mean free children’s books appearing on a tow path near you very soon. I will wave my wand and the clues will appear on Instagram so watch the posts.

That’s all from me for now. Happy Monday!

The Phantom Lollipop Man!

Review to follow (busy week!) but, as you can see, I adored this hence its position as the March Book of the Month!  



Igniting Writing is a creative writing club hosted at Wokingham Library and completely free to attend. The club provides a fun, relaxed atmosphere where 11-18 year-olds can develop their storytelling and writing skills. Writing can be a bit of a solitary activity, so this provides a great opportunity for teens to come together and write as a group, share their imaginative story ideas with others and build friendships with other young aspiring writers. Sessions are held on Saturday mornings, 10:30am to 12noon, and focus on a different aspect of writing every week, from creating characters and settings to exploring genres like sci-fi, fantasy and beyond. Roughly once a month Igniting Writing also hosts 'guest speaker' sessions, where local authors, poets, journalists and other people experienced in the world of writing come and share their knowledge and advice – it's a chance to get the inside scoop from the pros!
