You know that feeling when you have a secret you can’t wait to tell everyone? And you start jumping up and down in your chair just trying to keep a lid on it?
That’s been me for the last month but I can finally share the news. I’ve written another book! A Map of the Sky is being published by Lion Fiction and is coming out next summer (so if you’re in the habit of planning your holiday reading lists waaaaay in advance, I’ve given you plenty of warning!)
This is a book about childhood adventures, family secrets, chronic illness and the Yorkshire coastline. It’s the story of a young boy who wants to be a hero like the ones in his favourite books, and his attempts to ‘rescue’ the people he meets one summer by the North Sea.
I can’t wait to tell you more about A Map of the Sky. But first, I’ve got to finish editing and proofreading the manuscript. It’s safe to say I’ll be busy between now and then. There’ll be more details over the coming months, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, you can read an interview I did with Lion Hudson talking about my first book, The Runaway.
