GirlsHeartBooks


Just as I am starting to calm down after the launch of 'Verity Fibbs' and my heart is finally slowing to a normal rate, I get an exciting invitation and it's all a flutter once again! I'm about to start blogging on the most amazing site - Girls[Heart]Books. If you've never heard of it or checked it out and you are a girl who loves to read, then, OMG, how have you lived without Girls[Heart]Books all this time?!
You won't find my orange-haired photo in the author list just yet, but make a return visit next month and I shall probably be there, grinning stupidly at you!
I'll be posting about all sorts of stuff - what's happening in my studio, where I'm visiting and issues and ideas that concern or excite girls like us who 'heart' books. Of course, you'll also find blog posts by other amazing authors and be able to find out about their lives, their books and how they create them. HOW COOL IS THAT?! Ooo, my heart is thumping again. www.girlsheartbooks.com

Jumping at my desk about Ember

It seems my first ever book is still being discovered and enjoyed by new readers. This makes me very happy indeed, as you can probably imagine.
This week I was sent a 'Book Report' by a chap called Dexter (aged 9 and 3/4) and was delighted to see that he had chosen to write about Ember Fury. Turns out Dexter is a pretty good author himself. The report was really well written and I was pleased to hear that all my favourite bits of Ember Fury are Dexter's too. Instead of focussing on Ember's attention-seeking fire-starting or the crazy desert car chase with Finn, Dexter chose the scene where Em gave the chauffeur the slip and ended up in the comic book store as his fave (which was, incidentally, the best scene to write).
His favourite character was Ned, whom I ADORE too, almost more than Ember (shhh, don't tell her!). Dexter also liked my drawings and said they were 'amazing' which made me jump up and down at my desk (Dangerous as I'd just made a hot mug…

2017! Yay!

Happy New Year! Lots happening in 2017, particularly in the next few weeks, so I'm a little too busy to blog. I'll be back soon to update you on the launch of 'Electrigirl & the Invisible Thieves' in May, my exciting museum project, my next illustration commission for Barrington Stoke and two new spooky book projects I'm hoping to complete and submit later this year, one for 7-11s and one for YA/adults.

Surrey Artists' Open Studios

What a glorious weekend!
The spectacular weather has really shown off my new studio. The light has been wonderful, the perfect gallery space. The garden looks pretty great too. I've been asked for contact details of my landscaper, Jeff Roots, by LOADS of people and then yesterday he turned up with his family to see the fruits of all his hard work (and my planting, obvs!)

I had lots of visitors over the first two days and can't wait 'till next Saturday. I'll be open 11am - 5pm on the 11th, 12th, 18th & 19th June, so come along if you can. www.surreyopenstudios.org.ukClick HERE for details of all the other studios, maps and trails.
