Top Gossip!


Wednesday 16 April 2014

I'm writing this out in the garden, in the sunshine, and it feels fab after such a long, grey winter! I'm tweaking the final edits on SWEET HONEY, so it will be ready to publish on 5th June. Yay!!! If you can't wait until then, the very first copies will be available at my event on Weds 28th May at HAY BOOK FESTIVAL. You can find out more on my EVENTS page! I'll be in Shrewsbury, North Berwick, Liverpool and Guernsey soon too... check the EVENTS page for more info. And then it will be time for my June tour... can't wait!

Right now I'm busy working on a new book - something very different from the Chocolate Box Girls series, but something I think you're going to LOVE. It's top secret for now, but it'll be out next April!

I'm also loving the new DREAMCATCHER blog-zine - by my readers, for my readers! There's a new post every day, ranging from fun stuff to cool stuff and serious, dramatic stuff stuff. Take a look at DREAMCATCHER and scroll back through the posts to see what you've missed - and remember to comment as you go! 

If you'd like to contribute to DREAMCATCHER, join my FACEBOOK FANPAGE (if you're old enough to have FB) as lots of posts start as discussions on the FB fanpage; or email me your ideas and suggestions here. It'd be great to have you on board!

Well, back to writing my new book... and soaking up the sun... this is the life! What's YOUR favourite thing about April? Tell all! Oh, and Happy Easter!

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...
