Hello 2015!

imagesRIF6HIYMSo, January again… How did that happen? No resolutions: that way lies self-loathing when you fail at every one of them. So what has been going on since I last blogged?

Well, I am now entirely composed of cheese, chocolate, Christmas cake and wine. Action will need to be taken fast on this one.

School has resumed. Only 11 terms to go now!!

The writing has been going really well since New Year. A character who has been drumming her fingers on the inside of my skull waiting to get out into the new novel has been set loose, and has immediately found a voice I wasn’t quite expecting. Furthermore, she’ll be on at me if I don’t keep the story going now she’s part of it. Who knew it was possible to be bullied by a figment of your own imagination??

I have a few events lined up too, which is always a lovely way to start the New Year. First of all to Boroughmuir High School and then to Heriot’s School, both to talk about Dark Spell. I’m looking forward to meeting lots of enthusiastic readers and, hopefully, some enthusiastic writers too.
