Lockdown, what have you done?

Rainbow Hands

In March, as schools closed, I did wonder what next?

All the events, schools visits and opportunities to share my books disappeared.

Jay-JayBut somehow, I always feel the bus comes along and nudges me forward, especially when i am feeling low or despondent, and this year was no different.

I'd set up some raffle giveaways asking questions along the way; these questions gave me something to write on my blogs.

I was then asked to take part in an EYFS Bus Day. I had to think about what activities to do and I chose 'Daisy Daydream the Nursery Rhyme Bus',  for the day.

I was then asked to do another day and this time I decided to do a special edition of 'A Spooky Tale', adapted for my family. This story had also won a silver medal this summer in the Wishing shelf Book Awards.

My little friend Harriet is definately ready to sort out the crocodile!


So with a day set for the 28th October I was looking forward to it . Then i learnt that I was to be the featured author for the week. what a surprise.

Read the newsletter and join in the fun.  EYFS Home

Oh, and if you join the Spooky Tales day you will hear the background story for my next book, 'Barty Barton the Bear that Was Loved Too Much'. But can you love a bear too much?

It has certainly been an interesting year.

I have a few more books to work on next year, so in the meantime sign up for my newsletter to check out forthcoming events.
