Marion Lloyd Books

This week sees the announcement that Marion Lloyd, uber children's publisher, is to retire at the end of 2012.  See Julia Eccleshare's report here

This is big news in the world of publishing, and for me, as she has been my fantastic editor and publisher for all my teen books and for SPARKS.

 However, Marion is expecting my new book 'Midnight Pirates' to  arrive next Monday, so for the next few months it is all very much business as usual!

Answering your questions...

Check out The Guardian children's books pages for my answers to your questions about my books.

It has been fantastic that Bullet Boys has been the first book of the new Guardian Teen Book Club,
I've really enjoyed all of it, we've had podcasts, pictures, interviews, an introduction to the book, a nice fat extract and the Bullet Boys Quiz. Simply brilliant! Huge thanks to everyone at Guardian Books for their support.

And now back to the grindstone, a new book, Midnight Pirates, is soon to fly off to my publisher for an early viewing.
