I’m excited to report that I have a new book coming out this month (August)! It’s called ‘Uprooted – A Canadian War Story’ and is about my first year as a ‘war-guest’ – aka evacuee – in Canada at the start of World War Two. It’s a novel, but it’s based on my own experiences, so it’s a sort of fictionalised memoir. I think grown-ups would like it as well as young readers.
Great news! I've been awarded the prestigious J.M. Barrie Award by Action for Children's Arts!
News for Kindle-users! My book about my lovely young dragon, Ferocity P. Bychahedoff, is now available. It's in the Children's Book section of this site and you can buy it for your Kindle, and find out what happens when the Uprights are all banished and dragons run the world. They’re peaceable, civilized – and vocal – creatures now, but they haven’t evolved hands, and that makes things very difficult when coal supplies for their chest-fires begin to run short. Only their old enemies, the Uprights, might help – but how to find them?
