Here's a BIG HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone reading my diary... We've had a lovely Christmas and hope you have too.
I haven't made any New Year resolutions (have you?) but I am planning to be far more organised with my writing work. I've got quite a few things on the go at the moment, including a longer novel for older readers - Year 4 and above I think. So far I think it will be at least 17,000 words in length - so a lot longer than anything I've written before. I've written a few chapters of the book but the rest is on hold at the moment as I'm busy working on a little series of non-fiction books. I've written the first two in the series - one about Christopher Columbus and one about Neil Armstrong... I will tell you more about those and show you some picture as soon as I can. Right now the pictures are still being drawn so I haven't even seen them myself. Today I'm busy writing book 3 which is all about Queen Elizabeth I.
Today sees the publication of my very latest book - Smelly Socks and Terrible Tangles. HURRAH! I haven't seen the finished book yet but I'm hoping the postman will be delivering a couple of copies to me very soon.
Next week I will be visiting Minera Primary School in Wrexham - my first visit of the New Year and I can't wait... See you all soon...
