Sunny summer news

It has been the rainiest summer in ten thousand years (or something) in N. Ireland and it is now six weeks since I thought ‘Oh great- it’s the summer! Time to clear out all the junk and find my desk!’ and, although I have cleared out a bit of junk, I am still writing at the kitchen table and in various cafes because the desk is still covered in ‘Congratulations on your new baby’ cards (he is now 16 months old) and various other things that never needed to have a place 16 months ago….

There is a sunset rainbow in here somewhere.

But I had some great news recently which makes it feel a lot more sunnier!

I have a book deal!

Next year the amazing Atom Books will be publishing A Good Hiding, and there will be another book after that which I’m part way through writing at the minute.

I am really delighted to have such a great agent and publisher with me on this journey, and I am very excited about the next couple of years and ohmygoodnessmybookisgettingpublished!

Here’s my favourite youtube video. Stories are the best!
