Reading for Pleasure...


I will be talking about Bullet Boys and Dartmoor and landscape and writing for teens on 6th July at a Guardian/British Library event as a part of a conference for teachers about reading for pleasure.

This event links with the exhibition 'Writing Britain: Wasteland to Wonderland' at The British Library.

Guardian Children's Fiction Prize

BULLET BOYS has been longlisted for this prize which is VERY exciting indeed. The longlist includes 3 books from my publisher, Marion Lloyd Books / Scholastic. Go Go Go Marion Lloyd! for the full list see below, So far I have only read Roddy Doyle's A Greyhound of A Girl, which is a beautiful, beautiful book and I intend to give copies to people I love for years to come. I look forward to reading the other titles.


This is a GOOD DAY!
