Edinburgh Book Festival 2012

I had an event with Alan Gibbons, chaired by Philip Ardagh (The Grunts, Eddie Dickens) in which we discussed Bullet Boys and An Act of Love, writing and planning (sometimes in that order) research, the army, and much more.

The next day was a humungous event with 308 teens from surrounding schools. This event was hosted by Alan Durant and we talked all things Bullet Boys. The event was also filmed for GLOW, and streamed into classrooms all over the country... wow....there were some great questions from the students.

And then, lunch with the glorious Elen Caldecott,

Thanks to all at Edinburgh International Book Festival. It was fantastic!
