Yeti Discovered!

I’ve been really lucky to have one of my picture books, Not Yet a Yeti illustrated by Tony Neal, transformed into an interactive, multi-sensory story experience by Discover Children’s Story Centre in London. The clever director and story devisers used cute and magical special effects to create the wintery space, a chair lift, a mountain and even a rainbow disco at the end! I loved going to see this so much! If you have young children and are in reach of London, it’s a brilliant place to go with wonderful exhibitions, story telling and immersive play spaces. Not Yet a Yet is on until 19 February.

Free creative writing session!

If you are in reach of Luton, I’m running a free creative writing taster session next Wednesday 15 June as part of Festival of Learning.  Previously known as Adult Learners’ Week, Festival of Learning gives everyone a chance to try something new for free.

My session will be all about how to generate ideas and get your creative juices flowing, so it’s suitable for experienced writers who want a few fun techniques as well as those new to writing.  No need to book, just turn up and enjoy!

Oojamaflips galore!

Thank you to everyone who came to my book signing at WH Smith in Luton last week.  We made lots of pairs of glasses (some with special powers) and amazing oojamaflips with wings and even parachutes.  Photos of these incredible inventions are now up on Professor McQuark’s website.

Thanks also to everyone at Smith’s for having me!
