Hi again! Hope you are all happily back at school after enjoying the snow last week, even if the white fluffy stuff is still around in places.
This week I'm meeting some other authors and storytellers who will be taking part in a schools project in MORLEY, LEEDS, led by the storyteller PATRICK RYAN. Twelve new people. Wonder if I'll know any of them? I'll tell you more once we've all met.
This morning I've been busy planning a story day for the SOUTHWELL WORKHOUSE STORYTELLING GROUP, though that's not until the beginnng of February. Such an interesting starting point for stories - and I've heard the group are very good!
What else? Schools have begun calling about visits so I'm glad I have my satnav ready this winter.
And also my long novel for children, A BOY CALLED MOUSE, will be published by Bloomsbury later this year. That's so very exciting that I've started a new blog specially about everything Mouse-ish. It's called (drum roll! ta - daaaa!) THE YEAR OF MOUSE. Why not have a look over there too?
Bye for now. Be back again soon.
