WHAT I’M WORKING ON NOW
After years of self-doubt and procrastination, I consider myself a world expert on how NOT to write a book! I am now writing a book for writers who are going through the same hideous experience as me (based on the soul-soothing lessons I have learned). For updates, see my Facebook page.
A few years ago, I was commissioned to write a health book Oh Sugar! This has been translated into nine languages and was recently reprinted in pocket form as Say No to Sugar. I have also written a little self-help book, which has sold over 30,000 copies (published under a pseudonym), and three pocket motivational books (written in-house for a publishing company).
To my utter amazement, my debut children’s novel was shortlisted for the Times Children’s Fiction Competition in 2017. You can read my competition profile here. I have recently completed the Golden Egg Academy’s 12-month Writing for Children and Young Adults Course in an effort to actually finish my novel. (It’s taking a while. I have come to accept that it will ‘hatch’ when it’s ready.)
