Summer catch up.

Blimey- I've been busy.
No blogging for a while but I've been working very hard (managed to fit in a teeny weeny holiday too).Got MASSES of great stuff coming up over the next few months.
So will try and post more blogs, tweets and everything else I'm supposed to do these days.

Won't waffle on, here we go...

July 5th  Catherine had organised a fantastic press session doing back to back radio interviews from a London studio.I mostly talked about the summer reading scheme and why reluctant readers  seem to like Tom Gates. 
(Rock radio was my favourite interview by the way.)

Took part in Tales Of The Moon Book festival. 
(Read Sarah McIntyres Blog which 
has lots of great pictures and information on it.
She was there on the Tuesday before me.

I found out ON stage that I'd won the
Which news to me!

Lily took all the photos.
She's very helpful -
(all down to good parenting of course.)

After a meeting at Scholastic where I was finishing off
the new Tom Gates book - the sun was out so 
I SNUCK off to the Ladies ponds Hampstead.
In my student days I spent a lot of time there 
(probably too much).
The bus took a de-tour and went 
right past my old primary school Brookfield Junior - 
which is opposite Highgate cemetery. 
Kids would look out of the window 
and regularly claim to have seen GHOSTS during class. 

It was a bit freaky.

Ladies Ponds is the antidote to a very busy London.
It's like being on holiday but swimming in
slightly brown water.

Olympics - Liverpool and more summer stuff on next blog...
