Welcome to the Diary page


Welcome, finally, to my website. Visit, graze, leave a comment, follow me on Facebook or Twitter, then go out reading...

Title and date of my new YA novel announced! Plus, Crane Wife cover! Plus, hi to Kyle from Houston!


LOTS of news today (I told you, I kept promising, and here it finally is).  First up, as previously announced, I have a new adult novel called The Crane Wife coming out in April in the UK and Australia/NZ.  Want to see the cover?  It's here.

But in even BIGGER news, I can now announce that that's not the only book I'll have out next year.  In September 2013, I'll be publishing a brand new, big YA novel called...  drum roll... More Than This.  And for the first time ever, it's being published simultaneously in the US, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. 

I told you I've been busy.

There's also some cool news that A Monster Calls has won both the Oldham Book Award and the Stockport Book Award, which is great.  And finally, just a big hello to Kyle from Houston, who wrote me a fantastic handwritten letter, but didn't include a return address to write back to.  So I hope he sees this.

By the way, if you want to write me a letter, all you have to do is open the front of a book of mine in whatever country you live and write to me care of ("c/o") that publisher.  They forward the letters on to me, and I see them all.

Greetings to the new commenters and (even) more soon...
