BookTrust’s #TimetoRead campaign

Overjoyed to announce that THE GIRL OF INK & STARS has been selected as part of the BookTrust’s Time To Read campaign, and so will be promoted in every primary school in the UK. The campaign aims to raise awareness about the importance of children’s reading for pleasure, and of course literacy. It’s easy to sometimes get caught up in the myth of ‘being a writer’ – but really, that’s what is important.

More info on the campaign can be found here.


Event with Katherine Rundell

On the 24th September, I am doing an event at Waterstones Oxford with one of my favourite authors of all time, Katherine Rundell. Katherine’s books (THE GIRL SAVAGE, ROOFTOPPERS, THE WOLF WILDER) are a huge inspiration for my own writing, and I’m very nervous and excited to be sharing an event with her. Tickets are £2, and are available here.
