Children's Author's Family Photo Booth Pictures Go Viral

The last week or so has been a bit of a whirlwind, after I posted a tweet about my wife and I doing an annual photo booth picture since we first met, all kinds of media outlets have wanted to talk to us!

Anyway here's some of the places we've been, many thanks to all those who wrote to us about it and for all the kind words, we very much appreciated it.

Fat Fox Books acquires a new picture book

 Fat Fox Books have acquired the world rights to my latest picture book Little Bell and the Moon, which is the story of a girl and her relationship to the moon.

Little Bell And The Moon touches upon a subject that is rarely found in picture books, and is done so amazingly beautifully and positively,” said Holly Millbank, MD of Fat Fox Books “It’s a very special book and we are over the moon (with Bell) to be publishing it.”

Fat Fox will publish in 2015 and is in the process of finding a suitable illustrator.

Interested in School Author Visits?

It's nearly World Book Day 2014 and lots of schools around the country will be holding their very own 'Book Week' to celebrate.

This is a very busy time for many authors and illustrators who visits schools to talk about their books and hopefully inspire some children along the way.

I really enjoy this aspect of being an author, being able to talk to young readers and encourage them to enjoy books and reading is extremely rewarding.

I do sessions with Reception, KS1 and KS2 which include readings, Q&A sessions, character designing and story planning workshops.
