Upcoming Events

My new book The Giant and the Sea, illustrated by the amazing Rovina Cai, is being launched at Avid Reader on the 27th of May. It's a Zoom launch so anyone from around the world is welcome to attend.

There is also a pre-order competition where you can win this print, signed by Rovina.

Here's the Link.

If you'd just like to pre-order the book, and events aren't your thing here's the link for that.

I'll also be doing a reading, and Rovina an art class, via Zoom at the fabulous Readings books. The link is here.
