Yes, the season of book festivals and National Poetry Day is swirling with words… just like autumn leaves. So, if you’re still looking for a quick verse for Poetry Day, just click on TICKLING WITH WORDS.

October has already been buzzing with all sorts. What fun we had at the Appledore Book Festival and what a delight it’s been to be whisked around the lanes of North Devon to run workshops at wow schools. How’s this for a list of visits? Lovely Lynton Primary, Paradisiacal Parracombe Primary, Beautiful Berrynarbour Primary, Illustrious Ilfracombe Academy, Wonderful West Down Primary, Noteworthy Northam St. Margaret’s and Sensational South Molton Community College. It was geat to meet you all and a huge thanks for such warm welcomes.

Meanwhile, across the Atlantic some new editions are emerging. Click on the cover of NEVER ODD OR EVEN for details of the new US version. Or click HERE for some of my other titles in the USA.

And get ready America for the BIG celebrations in 2020 for MAYFLOWER 400 – and my little book coming soon. After all, books and festivals are just made for each other. Happy October-fest!
