I’m delighted to announce that your Bute Park tutor has been shortlisted for a major award, the 2017 Lollies (Laugh Out Loud awards), for Thimble Monkey Superstar. Fear not, this will not affect the price of creative writing courses in Bute Park, although it does mean I’ll have to limit these this year to make time for school and library visits during the voting period.
This year I celebrate thirty years as a Cardiff author, and I couldn’t wish for a better way to mark the occasion.
Congratulations should also go to my brilliant illustrator, Martin Chatterton, who has illustrated half a dozen of my books, including Little Stupendo, shortlisted for the 1996 Children’s Book Award.
Thimble Monkey Superstar is for sale at all the usual outlets, but you can buy it at a discount price from Firefly Press, a local publisher which is really making a name for itself. If you like the book, please vote for it here, and if you are a teacher or librarian interested in an author visit, I am doing these for a very low fee at present.
As always, I am happy to hear from anyone interested in taking a course – feel free to email me with your area of interest.
