I’m working on several book projects at the moment, ranging from picture books to novels.
These include The Ghost Squad, a YA speculative fiction novel, very ‘high concept’, which I’m working on as part of my creative writing PHD, a junior fiction ‘chapter book, and three picture books, two of which will be published by Little Hare, and one by Hachette, in 2017! Also out in 2017 will be a new YA novel, an exciting spy adventure set in Paris in 1910, called Jack of Spades. And that doesn’t include an adventure novella/long short story, an anthology I’m editing, several poems in other writers’ anthologies–and more!
The picture books are:
Once Upon An ABC, a quirky ABC book based on folk and fairy tales, to be illustrated by Christopher Nielsen, out with Little Hare in April 2017.
Two Rainbows, a story about a child now living in the city who once lived on a farm, illustrated by Michael McMahon, out with Little Hare in July 2017.
Building Site Zoo, illustrator still TBC, a fun picture book about machines seen as animals, out with Hachette in 2017, exact date still to be confirmed.
The adventure story/novella, The Romanov Opal, will be published as part of the And Then adventure fiction anthology for adults, published by Clan Destine Press this year.
