I’m very excited to say I’ll be speaking at the EIBF – the Edinburgh International Book Festival on 18th August. I’m doing two events – one with Sally Green, which is a schools’ event, ie not open to the general public, but the other is with Mary Hooper and is a general event open to the public. You can find out more and book tickets here –

Really hope some of you can come and say hi!


Update to the below – you know I said I had two extra events I wasn’t allowed to reveal? Well I can now reveal one of them – I’m speaking at the Hay on Wye Literary Festival in May. I could NOT be more excited! This is a festival I’ve been to lots in my other role as a publicist but it’s the first time I will have spoken there.

It’s a panel event about the Paranormal and I’m speaking with two amazing other authors, CJ Daugherty, author of the best-selling Night School series, and Sally Green, whose astonishing debut Half Bad came out earlier this year.

More information here – hope you can make it!


I’ve been REALLY rubbish about posting on my news page but my new year’s resolution is to be better about it!

First bit of news – I will be speaking at the first ever UK YA Literary Conference alongside a stellar line up including Malorie Blackman, Patrick Ness, Derek Landy, James Dawson, Sophie McKenzie and many others. More information here:

I will be speaking on Sunday 13th July and you can find out more here:

I’ve also got two further announcements about UK events but I can’t reveal these yet – more to come!
