Great review on Seattle Post!

At 6.30 this morning, sitting bleary-eyed and pyjamaed in front of my computer screen, I was amazed and delighted to see that the Seattle Post had published this interview!

“O frabjous day, calloo callay”,he chortled in his joy.


The next novel

One of the fantastic things about getting a novel published, assuming that sales go well and people enjoy the book, is that there is a guaranteed read for the next novel. Do I have a next novel? Absolutely. It’s a YA thriller with a stubbornly cheerful teenage protag called Ally Jones, a girl whose eccentric university professor father has been kidnapped. Her search for him takes her on a journey that includes the London of the Black Death and Great Plague, the secrets of nursery rhymes, and opens up a dark and terrifying world where the only answer to a Norse end of the world lies in the grammatical secrets of an ancient map of a medieval English castle.

Now I’ve just got to find time to write it.
