2014- In pictures!

Happy 2015!

As a new year begins what better time to reflect on 2014?
Excitingly, the Three Magic Mice ballet was
launched and performed by the fabulous Balletomane!
It was such a thrill to see my story come to life
in a new form with lovely music, beautiful
 (and very inventive!) costumes, and terrific dancers.

I bit the bullet and posted my first "Jackanory" style video to Youtube.
And my own fairytale came true as I got to go to a Disney ball!

LITTLE WHITE LIES was published in the US and Canada!

LITTLE WHITE LIES was published in the US and Canada! To celebrate, I launched a giveaway, and there's a few days left (closing date 1st Feb) so if you'd like to enter simply tweet this message: "LITTLE WHITE LIES Launch day GIVEAWAY! RT to win a signed copy & watch the #LWLBookTrailer here:"

I was absolutely thrilled that LITTLE WHITE LIES
 also won the UKYA Book Bloggers Award for "Best Ending"!
Unfortunately I can't tell you what that ending is, as it's a bit of a twist!
I got to attend the first ever YALC convention at Comicon
 - and met some very interesting characters!

I was also lucky enough to be invited to do lots of author visits in 2014, both at bookshops and schools (both secondary and primary). 

I really love meeting kids and their fabulous librarians - sorry, library goddesses!

It's so much fun encouraging kids with their writing - 
their imagination has no bounds, and their enthusiasm and excitement always makes my day.
Icknield Primary School even produced their own illustrations
for the Fairy Tale Twists series - watch your back, Matt Buckingham!

And I even got to meet my own literary idol, Jodi Picoult!
And I've been working away on a number of projects - including my first ever musical! - so watch this space!

Here's to 2015!
