THE SPRITE SISTER PREQUELS

I am delighted that Fischer Verlag accepted the manuscript for Marina’s Story, the second prequel, without needing a single change. Never had this before! The book will be published in Spring 2018 in Germany. I am now pressing on with Ash’s Story, the third and final prequel. This will be published by Fischer in Autumn 2018. Flame’s Story, the first prequel, will be published in a few weeks’ time. Watch this space!

BEST WISHES TO ALL MY READERS FOR A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

And wishing you a happy, healthy and successful 2017!

At the end of April, Fischer Verlag will publish the first Sprite prequel, Flame’s Story. At the end of September, Fischer will publish the tenth and final story in the Sprite Sister series.

As judge of the Mal Peet Children’s Award – part of the East Anglian Book Awards 2016 – I was delighted to give the prize for best children’s book to Linda Davies, for her wonderful, imaginative story, Longbow Girl.

Here we are at the end of a lovely awards dinner at Jarrold’s, Norwich, on 3rd November.

This was my second year as a judge on the EABA. My thanks to the Eastern Daily Press, Jarrold’s and Writers’ Centre Norwich.
