The winners of the Cool Character Writing Comp are online now… well done to all the fab winners! Check them out now – and take a look at the brilliant new writing comp! Entries are pouring in already…

Thanks to everyone who entered the Cool Character Comp… there were some amazing entries and the standard was higher than ever! It was SOOOO hard to choose the winners, and as usual I picked several in each category, as well as runners-up. And I listed several hundred readers as highly commended, those whose stories or poems stood out in some way… thanks, all of you, for entering. I’m sorry not everyone can be a winner – there were almost 1000 entries, so the competition was stiff! I hope you had fun entering, anyway!

If you love writing, have a go at the new writing comp on the WRITER’S WORKSHOP page now… and good luck!!!

I’m just getting over the ‘flu and settling down to write my next book… top secret for now! Happy writing….
