I’ve just returned from a trip to my home town of Norwich where I had a fabulous evening at Jarrold’s, talking and signing. So many of my old school friends from Hethersett High came along to support me and it was amazing to see them all again and catch up on all the gossip. I can’t believe it’s been such a long time since we were all together!
Here I am signing a few books.
I adored all the posters around the store and felt very honoured to share window space with Lauren Child’s Charlie and Lola and Francesca Simon’s Horrid Henry! It really was a very special evening and many thanks to the fabulous Mike Butler who arranged it.
I stayed at a fabulous bed and breakfast whilst in Norwich where everything was vegetarian and environmentally friendly, and I had the best breakfasts ever! And there was time to see the beautiful Norfolk Broads and revisit some places from my childhood. Here’s Buxton Mill – one of the many places we used to cycle to.
Now it’s back to the desk and there’s a whole heap of work to get stuck into which I’m actually looking forward to it. It’ll be nice to see my characters again and find out what they’ve been up to!
