August 19th 2017- Lovely news from America!

Jay feather found on the Wood Path today!

Update, August 19th 2017

I am absolutely thrilled to tell you that the Fairy Tales will be published in America, Fall next year! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful to have an American edition as well.

Welcome back everyone who has followed me here from my old website. And welcome to all new readers. I'm so pleased to have you here.

I seem to have been out of touch for a long time, but I think it will have been worth it. I plan to add to this new site as often as I can, so that there will be lots of information to explore, and background to read.

The news is that I have two new books coming out, one for this year and one for next. The first is the lovely Fairy Tales Retold, with Sarah Gibb's gorgeous artwork that we have used all over this website. The publication date is October 2017, and it has been such an adventure to write.

The second book is a story set in the past. I have called it Love to Everyone. Those of you who have read the second Binny book: Binny in Secret/Binny Keeps a Secret will remember the subplot of the family from one hundred years before. Love to Everyone is their story told in full, from when they were children together to when they were grown up, right through the period of World War 1. It took me a long time to write, the research led me further and further into the world of that time, and the characters grew with the writing so that in the end the story almost told itself. It will be published, both here and in the US in June 2018.  I am looking forward to that date so much.

Both of those books deserve some extra background material added, and I will be updating the website with this over the next few weeks and months.
