It's been a long time coming, but my first chapter book, DO NOT DISTURB THE DRAGONS is about to hit the shelves - and I couldn't be more proud of the end result.
It's illustrated brilliantly by Sharon Davey, who is extremely talented, has a cracking sense of humour and is a warm-hearted, generous person - all of which makes her a dream to work with. Just like the rest of the team at our publishers, Bloomsbury.
Huge thanks to the whole team who all deserve so much credit - it always seems wrong to me that books don't have a big list at the end like movies do.

And of course our agents, The Catchpole Agency and Plum Pudding, who had our backs throughout.
THANK YOU ALL. I hope everyone is as delighted with the book as I am -- especially the young readers who are about to discover the realm of Wondermere with Grace on her first epic quest. Yes, her first - we're all busy working on Book 2!
