Top Gossip!


Wednesday 12 March 2014

Phew! just recovering from an awesome World Book Week... I took part in the Biggest Book Tour roadshow and met lots of fab readers, old and new! I especially loved meeting the girls from my Blackburn event who were dressed as the characters from my books... it was as if the stories had come to life! Did you have fun on World Book Day? Remember you can use your World Book Day token to get £1 off any book... what will YOU buy?

I'm home again now but no time to rest... I'm planning out a new book, due out this time next year. It's top secret for now, but trust me you are going to LOVE it! I've just finished writing another of my little 'extra' e-book shorts, like the fabby 'Chocolates & Flowers: Alfie's Story.' This new one is called 'Hopes & Dreams' and tells the story of Summer's friend Jodie - it will be out next month, just in time for Easter! Don't say I'm not good to you! You can find the e-books at a bargain mini-price over on

Have you had a look at my new blog-zine, DREAMCATCHER yet? The readers on my Facebook Fanpage have been helping me to put together some awesome features... maybe you'd like to get involved, too? Click the DREAMCATCHER link on the homepage and find out how to be a part of it all!

April will be a writing month for me, but I will be heading to WALES for a fab event at the CARDIFF CHILDREN'S LITERATURE FESTIVAL on Sunday 13th April... check the EVENTS page for more details! Whoop!

Last but not least, I've finished the edits for SWEET HONEY... just the proofs to check! You can now pre-order SWEET HONEY so you can be one of the first to read it when it comes out on JUNE 5TH. Expect LOTS of drama... and expect the unexpected, too!

Going to drag the dogs out for a walk in the park while this sunshine lasts... what's YOUR favourite thing about spring?

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...
