Thank you for signing up!

Many thanks for signing up to my occasional newsletter. I am thrilled to say that the final draft of the sequel to The Secret Lake is going through last minor edits, and the cover is now being designed. I will keep you updated on progress between now and publication date, which is planned for the first quarter of 2022 📚 😊 Feedback from my editor and a couple of beta readers has been fantastic —I have a feeling this sequel will not disappoint!

If you don’t yet have The Secret Lake or need extra copies you will find it here on Amazon — or you can order it in print from any high street bookshop, including Bookshop.org in your country, and from Gardners or Ingram wholesalers if you’re a school or bookshop❤️.

I hope you enjoy this picture of a little mole I recently bought in our local village. Those of you who have read The Secret Lake will know that moles play a very important role in the story. I just couldn’t resist this one! They are just as important in the sequel, by the way!😉

Magical moles play a vital role in The Secret Lake. I could not resist this one! 😊

One other book I thought I’d mention while here: if you are a primary or elementary school teacher, or have younger ones aged 3-6 The Tell-Me Tree continues to receive high praise from parents, schools and children’s charities for helping children share feelings, whether happy, sad or anywhere in between, through writing, drawing or conversation. It also comes with fantastic free downloadable activities, for use at home or in the classroom. Follow the link to find out more. 😊

PS If your children have enjoyed The Secret Lake it would mean a lot to me — and help others discover the story — if you could help them leave a short review online at your preferred store. Thank you!
