I am just back from an AMAZING visit to Paris to meet my French publishers – and of course, my awesome French readers!

My Chocolate Box Girls series (Filles aux Chocolat in France) are very popular in France and my visit began with a special Cathy Cassidy party with an amazing spread of cakes designed to look like those on the French covers. Yum! Readers and book bloggers came from far and wide to get their copies signed over the next few days, and I was given hugs and presents and interviewed for blogs and magazines… wow!

Now I’m home and working on a secret story to share with you early next year… nope, no clues, not telling! I’m also working on the second draft of Sweet Honey, which will be out in May… almost there! It’s ages since I last blogged, but I promise to be less erratic in future… fingers crossed!

Oh, and there’s just a little matter of Christmas to get ready for, too… are you all sorted yet? I think December is my favourite month… what’s YOUR fave thing about December? 

See you soon!



  1. Wow, that sounds cool… I would love to go to France! My bff’s school went for a trip like in Ooh La La, Daizy Star… not fair! Sounds cool, anyway!
