Counting down to Princess BMX – saving Sir Jeffrey and other stuff

I promised in the run-up to the publication of Princess BMX, I’d tell you more about the book and the inspiration behind it. On that note, I’d like to share with you an interview I recently did for Words and Pictures, the SCBWI British Isles on-line magazine, about my debut journey.

Click on the link at the end of the page to find out more about my road to publication, my top tip for unpublished and unagented writers and to read the shocking revelation of how Princess BMX’s puppy Sir Jeffrey Bobbersons almost suffered death by microcorn.

A microcorn – I hear you say… Introducing Doreen!

Doreen the microcorn – a stumpy, mini unicorn – may be small but she has a big personality. And big teeth…they can munch their way through anything. She’s strong too. And clever, although her actions are usually more controlled by her stomach than her brain. With a bleat that can rival any goat and a tendency for headbutting, don’t expect Doreen to fade into the background.

And here’s the link to the Words and Pictures article. If you have any questions or comments about the article I’d love to hear them.
