From 9-12 June 2014, I'll be joining the David Estes Fans & YA Book Lovers Unite group on Goodreads for a Q&A session about Code Name Verity. You do need to join the group to participate, but you can read along without joining, too. Here's the link to the group:

Petticoats & Pistols

I'm going to have a story included in Jessica Spotswood's new anthology, Petticoats and Pistols, which Candlewick Press has just acquired. The collection will be a bonanza of new historical fiction about amazing women. Mostly to be set in America, I believe. My story will almost certainly feature some flying! Details here

9-12 May 2014, SCBWI British Isles Writers' Retreat

The spring SCBWI retreat is returning to Dunford House in West Sussex, an hour from London, 9th May to 12th May 2014! I'll be one of two guest speakers, along with agent Bryony Woods,named a 2013 Rising Star in the book trade by the Bookseller. It's an ideal opportunity for space to write away from your usual day-to-day demands and the programme is scheduled to allow maximum writing time.

One-to-ones with the speakers will also be available.
