Festival time!

April and May are busy months with Mirror Magic coming in June. I’ve just received an actual, real copy of the book and it is beautiful inside and out. Here’s a sneak preview of the first pages.



I’ll be announcing launch plans soon, but in the meantime if you fancy a quick trip to South Wales, I’ll be at two terrific festivals in Cardiff and Pontypridd, where I will be talking about pirates, props and magical places.

On the 25th April I’ll be at the Cardiff Children’s Literature Festival, chairing a discussion on writing for children and how to get published with author Horatio Clare and literary agent Philippa Milnes-Smith. And on Saturday 28th April, the giant pirate hat will be coming out for my children’s session on imagination, stories and adventure. Tickets are available here

If you can’t make it to Cardiff, I’ll be at the brand new Pontypridd Children’s Book Festival on the 12th May, signing books and teaching a writing masterclass. I’m really looking forward to this one. There are lots of fantastic authors going and there’ll be board-games, market stalls and lots more. It’s shaping up to be great fun. Tickets for my masterclass are selling out fast, so book soon!  https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/pontypridd-childrens-book-festival
