What am I up to right now?

I am recovering from the shock of being shortlisted for the Times/Chicken House Children’s Fiction Competition! I have ideas for books 2 and 3 but first I need to edit my manuscript…

I have started a new part time job assisting a disabled teacher in a school for kids with learning disabilities. It’s a lovely job. Challenging at times but great fun too.

I am training to be a TRE Provider (Tension Release Exercises). TRE is the best thing I have found to relieve stress and calm my frazzled nervous system. You can find out more about TRE at

I am reading The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel, which I absolutely loved when I was a teenager. Don’t tell anyone, but I secretly yearn to live in a Neanderthal tribe.
