Today I had a very exciting and nerve-racking experience - a radio interview with Mark O'Donnell about Rabbityness and being shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize. I must say I was very nervous, but Mark was very lovely and put me at my ease! So if you have a few minutes to spare, make yourself a cuppa and have a little listen.http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p014r4xr

Here's a 'very' basic animated book trailer for 'Never Ever'. It's a bit 'homemade' and on a minus shoestring budget, but it was great fun to do! I got a bit stuck when it came to adding sound, so a big thank you to Damien and www.freefx.co.uk who helped me out of a hole!
Here are a few spreads from the new book too...
'Never Ever' is Available from all good booksellers including these...
