At my desk...


I'm rather busy juggling jobs at the moment and trying to get all sorts of things finished before I get EVEN BUSIER next week!! That new illustration job I mentioned will be arriving soon and I've been preparing for another round of fun school visits (can't wait). I've had to deal with a sick car this week too (poor thing) but she's better now, having had a load of expensive 'surgery'! I also have some very exciting news... but can't tell you just yet. This time next week I will be celebrating, so pop back in seven days and join me. We'll have a party :D
(This is one of the first drawings I ever did of Scarlett)

Holiday? What Holiday?


Just checked my diary and, yes, I had written HOLIDAY in giant red capital letters over the next two weeks. Huh! Yeah, right! When I wrote that word (many months ago) I assumed I'd have the same quiet January I had last year, but I suppose I should know by now that the life of a freelancer is never predictable (I've been self-employed for more than 20 years after all!). I'm busy busy busy with my next book (which I LOVE) and about to begin school visits and promotion for 'Scarlett' again (which I also LOVE). I've got an interesting illustration job coming soon, for a publisher I've never worked for before, so I'm quite excited about that too. Phew! Actually a good thing I didn't book two weeks in the sun, isn't it?
