HELLO, 2012!

Tuesday 3 January 2012

Hello there 2012… good to meet you! I think you are going to be cool and crazy and filled with opportunity, friendship and change. Or maybe I just hope that you are! I know you are going to be busy, anyhow! I’ll be touring in April when Marshmallow Skye goes paperback, then again in June when Summer’s Dream is out… and I have the new Daizy Star book to write before making a start on the 4th Chocolate Box Girl book, Coco Caramel. I think there’ll be a few surprises, too!

I’m still planning out my New Year resolutions. Instead of the usual ‘work harder, be more organised, eat less chocolate…’ I might try to pick some things I can actually achieve. ‘Dream more, hug more, hope more, stop worrying about the chocolate…’ Hmmm. That might work.

I love the idea that the New Year is a new start, a chance to begin again. Do you have any dreams, hopes, wishes and plans for 2012? Let’s make this year the best one yet!

    I can never keep my resolutions. Mostly they're stop daydreaming in maths, try and finish a story and think less judgmental things about people i don;t get on with. ah well maybe this year will be different. Or maybe not. i love your books Cathy, especially Ginger snaps because she reminds me of myself, in one way.... please bring summers dream forward a month??!!!!!

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...
