I said I had some more dates coming up - and here's the next one! I'm going to be at Waterstones Piccadilly on 9th May. I'll be talking about The State of Grace and families in YA with some of my favourite authors - it would be LOVELY to see you there. Join me, Holly Bourne, Tamsyn Murray and Paige Toon for a chat!
There's a lovely big heap of signed copies of The State of Grace at Waterstones Deansgate in Manchester if anyone fancies one! Just had a lovely coffee and chat about a possible event, too - watch this space! :)
