First and foremeost, thanks to the parents of the Dwight Bookclub for inviting me to talk about Puffin Boy. I really felt humbled and flattered about how well you knew the book, and also the two short stories on this website. I have many more short stories, so if you´re interested in reading some, let me know.
And so here we go again. I write this in the early stages of seeking represenation for Lazari, my new novel. I spent the summer tidying it up and am now sending it off to Literary agents. Again I use a teenage protagonist, Simon, a boy who turns out to be quite special, and having “tried” the first chapter on my Year 11s, they gave it the thumbs up! Well, they would, wouldn´t they!
