May 2015

BekI went to Bekonscot Model Village recently. The little boy I took was fascinated by the constant buzz of trains; but I loved the idea of so many buildings, each with the potential of interesting things happening inside them.

Visiting schools is always interesting because I meet so many fascinating people. SilverDell Bookshop in Kirkham, then Urmston Bookshop in Manchester were brilliant hosts who took me to wonderful schools in the Blackpool, Preston and Manchester. I spent my lunch times in their bookshops surrounded by an amazing array of books and treated The Milkshake Detectives Caitlinto a banana and chocolate milkshake at SilverDell. Here I am with publicist Caitlin who joined us.

In the same week I was a guest at Northampton University with students, librarians and schools as part of their Carnegie shadowing event. While I was there I met a man whose knees clicked. I think he (or at least, his knees) might turn up in a book sometime soon!)

I must do some writing this month and not put off creating a final scene that needs to be intricately worked. I’ve done all the ground work and research for it – just need to disappear for a few days and do it!

Happy May!
