Princess BMX FanArt Competition

My friend Louie Stowell, author of Dragon in the Library and The Monster in the Lake, recently surprised me with some Princess BMX fanart. This got me thinking about how wonderful it would be to launch my new YouTube channel with a competition to get you drawing too.

So get your pencils out and tag me with your Princess BMX inspired illustrations to win a signed copy of the book plus your very own Tyson the Teabag.

Full details in the video above.

* Competition closes Monday 1st June 2020. The judge’s decision is final. UK entries only – although I’d still love to see your fanart if you live somewhere else! 


Win a Free School Visit

To celebrate the launch of Princess BMX, I’m teaming up with the Manchester Children’s Book Festival to offer primary schools in the North West the chance to win a free author visit.

Open to schools within a twenty-five mile radius of Manchester, I’ll choose one winner at random to receive an assembly presentation, KS2 creative writing workshop and book signing session.

To enter all you need to do is e-mail me by the 15th July 2019 with a few details. Download the leaflet below for more information on the competition and Princess BMX school visits and events.

Tyson the tea bag who accompanies me on all my school visits.
