Time to take a deep breath, because I’ll be releasing quite a number of books in  2023.

In March, I’m starting an illustrated junior fiction series which has been so much fun to write. Five books are planned in this series so far and the first two will be released at the same time. Called The Wish Sisters, the series is about a very tricksy imp and a baby who can wish. The illustrations, by Karen Blair, are absolutely adorable. The first two books are called The Party Wish and The Big Wish and I can’t wait to see what little readers think of them! Books 3 and 4 in the Wish Sisters series – The Running Wish and The Pet Wish – will be released in the second half of ’23 and then The Christmas Wish in November ’23.

The second book in the Miss Penny Dreadful series will be released in April. Called Miss Penny Dreadful and the Malicious Maze, we continue on our adventures with Miss Penny, Aunt Harriet, Jones and the dastardly Mr Crowley. Penny manages to solve the mystery of a malicious maze that is said to be gobbling up servants! But will Penny locate her parents? Hmmm… I don’t think so. You might have to wait until later in the year when Miss Penny Dreadful and the Mermaid’s Locks is released to find out exactly where they’ve got to!

And in 2024? I might need a rest. Only kidding, I’ll just keep writing …
