Holiday Happenings

Hello! Hope you’re enjoying the summer holidays. I got away for a week after a super-intense writing time. I think the hire car company knew I was due to write my 2nd Young Bond novel – check out that numberplate!

I was busy writing the next book in the Magic Ink/Aliens Stink cycle – called STOP THOSE MONSTERS! I got 28,000 words written in eight days. I was also busy checking the last corrections to SHOOT TO KILL, making sure everything was as good as it could be. Only three months till it’s out, but you can pre-order now!

For book 2, I’ve been practicing my action moves…

While walking in Mallorca I smiled to find this sign at the end of a track. It sounds like something has escaped from one of my books!

As well as writing, it’s back to events too. I’m appearing at Croome Court in Worcestershire on Thurs 14th August for the Summer Reading Challenge, and then Friday 22 August sees my event at Edinburgh Children’s Book Festival come round. It’ll be my ninth EdFest running so I’m hoping they’ll have me back next year for number 10!
