Join me on the Cut-Throat Café blog tour

At the beginning of April, in lieu of a book launch at my local bookshop, I was excited to have a virtual book launch on YouTube, and thrilled so many people managed to come along.

I'm even more excited to tell you about my blog tour, taking place the week beginning 27 April:


As the tour progresses, I'll keep the page updated with direct links. But for now, below are some links so you can get to know the bloggers and their blogs.

Thanks so much to my publisher Chicken House for setting this up - but especial thanks to those bloggers who have let me ramble on about everything from why I love writing for children, or answer questions and reveal a few secrets along the way of what goes into writing the world of Seth and Nightshade...

27 April, 2020 - Read It Daddy
28 April, 2020 - My Shelves Are Full
29 April, 2020 - A Little but a Lot

Now a proud author of THREE books

Firstly, a big thank you to everyone who made it to the virtual launch of The Cut-Throat Cafe. Particularly to those who made shortbread!

It was lovely that so many people were able to join - and ask questions. I love to hear from readers, so if you have a question, you can contact me easily through the contact page on this website, or through my facebook page and I shall do my best to answer.

And if I can I share some of the lovely photos you send me in my newsletter too. If you haven't subscribed yet, you can do that on this website too.

If you weren't able to make the launch live, you can watch it again here and watch me try to talk, answer questions and make shortbread and decide how successful I was.

I am very proud of how my three books all look together. Thanks to the brilliant artist Matt Saunders for the illustrations. 

Here they all are. I so hope you will enjoy reading them and following Seth's magical mystery adventures.
