I have three new books coming out in 2009… Daizy Star in June, Angel Cake in May and a third, secret book coming in October… woo!!!! I’m also REALLY looking forward to visiting Singapore, Australia and New Zealand in May…. exciting!!!

My resolutions are:
to be more organized
to eat less chocolate, &
to have more fun!!!

Hopefully I can stick to at least some of them! Reader Alex, age 15, sent in her resolutions, which I thought were really cool… take a look!
1. Find back of phone.
2. Get hair cut.
3. Hand in late coursework (even if it means chaining myself to the desk).
4. Try not to feed Mrs Chant’s geranium Ribena.
5. Get more sleep!
6. Pass grade 6 clarinet.
7. Be a nicer person.
8. Stop loving Nick.
9. Fall in love with someone who loves me back
10. Start living!

    wow i will be super quick to buy your new books, i cant wait!!!
    anyway, on chistmas day, like many other children around the uk, i woke up and found that one of my presents was "Ginger snaps" and i finished it in 4 days as i could not put it down! it was brilliant and thank you very much for writing that wonderfull book and also are you doing any signings in devon? i was just wondering because your books are so good!!! In ginger snaps, after i read it, i could relate with ginger in the part when she spit up with shannon as i have recently been through that and it gave me some advice on how to just relax and let it flow and i also would like to say ,the ginger snaps cookies were DELICIOUS!!! (without the onions!!) and a wonerfully happy new year to you too cathy!!

Hello planet!

Coco here! I’m afraid on top of ALL of the worlds other problems (global warming, saving the pandas…

I could go on!) we’ve also been having a few problems with spam comments – it’s probably just my mental sisters messing about…

But ANYWAY, to post your comment, simply put my first name (Coco) in the box below!

Lots of love,


Please wait...
