Holidays mean long journeys, which I love because that means lots of time for reading too. I really enjoyed Hilary McKay's The Skylark's War and Bai Rai's Now or Never. I'd thoroughly recommend both of them
Whenever I'm on my travels I always like to pop into the local bookshops to say hello. I left with a pile of books by Australian author from a lovely independent bookshop in Brisbane with the great name, Where The Wild Things Are.
I'm home again now. Back to snowdrops and surprisingly warm Spring sunshine and happy dogs. And back at my writing desk . . . I feel some new stories coming on.
