Why I Haven't Blogged Since May

It has to be said, it's been a very busy time. Here's what I've been up to...

Firstly we've had lots of friends and family visiting, which has involved things like taking them out on fishing trips.

Followed by cooking lots of lovely meals from our catch. (We caught the mackerel. The rest came from a shop.)

I've been making new friends.

...and trying to find a quiet spot away from the millions of holiday-makers who love St Ives as much as I do.

I've been running creative writing workshops...

...going on writing retreats with fellow children's authors...

...visiting beautiful locations to get inspiration for my next book...

And, of course, finding a bit of time to write.

Hope you're having a lovely summer! Let me know what you've been up to too!

I love that pic of the ocean and island. I hope it gave you lots of inspiration. As for my summer all I did was have my birthday partyparty, but that was so much fun!

I love your books. I'm reading The Fairy's Promise right now. I started on Philippa Fisher and then my grandma got me the first Emily Windsnap book, and I got hooked! I let my friend borrow the Emily books,and she LOVED them! Keep writing great books! :3

Hi. I loved all the Emily Windsnap books I told my sister to read them to shezs on the fourth book and likes them to. I just finished the first Philipa Fisher book and can't wait to read the rest. Your books inspire me.

Hi, Liz!
I absolutely love the Emily Winsnap series, and I am a total mermaid at heart! Thank you for inspiring me to become a great writer and for giving me a second life through your books!
