Indefinite Hiatus

It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my indefinite hiatus from writing to pursue some other creative projects.

I will however continue to work with schools and attend events to promote my books for the foreseeable future.

Publishing can be a very hard game to play and I have been lucky enough to enjoy some very large highs, but also a good number of lows, some of which have led to this decision.

I am eternally grateful to everyone who has supported me over the last few years, it has been a joy getting to know so many wonderful people.

So this isn't the end, I will be back.

Thanks and be good!

The Day I Got to Meet Brian Blessed

I was very excited last week as I got to meet the legendary Brian Blessed, who is doing the voice of the Fearsome Beastie in the animation short of my book.

It was such a pleasure and he is really is lovely chap, we were all enthralled by his various stories of showbiz antics from watching Peter Cushing in the theatrical production of 1984 to having tea with Kenneth Branagh! Plus he spoke at length about his many adventures and his extreme challenges which included going to some rather remote locations in South America, all were conveyed with some rather colourful language, which was both shocking and hilarious.

I do hope that I get to meet him again when we eventually do a launch screening for the film, a true British Legend.
