I'm taking part in the YA Dash, an online competition and giveaway featuring 10 fantastic YA suspense authors. Details for the event are here on the YA Dash web page - there will be lots of truths, lies and secrets flying around the internet from 18-20 May! Join me and use the hashtags #YADash and #truthorlie. It promises to be a whole lot of fun.
Come check out my Playmobil collection and maybe learn something about writing! I'm running a workshop on world-building, sponsored by the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators in Southeast Scotland. The event will be held in Edinbugh on 9 May 2015 from 2-5 p.m. Details and registration are available on the SCBWI website here. Hope to see you there!
I'm now on tour in the USA promoting the release of Black Dove, White Raven! Here are the dates and venues of my appearances this week.
To commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day 2015, Scottish Book Trust and the Edinburgh Inter Faith Association have asked me to speak about Rose Under Fire and the real events behind the story to school groups at Edinburgh Academy. The event will take place on 27 January 2015, which marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, a fitting date for this memorial. The Scottish Book Trust has also put together an excellent resource pack for use with Rose Under Fire. More information about the event can be found here.
