New School Year
I love this time of year. The sudden heavy dews on the morning. The crisp chill in the air. New books and pencils. Shiny school shoes.
Josh/Hazelburrow/Evilburrow is back at school. I’m sure he’ll keep blogging, but he has to put school and homework first, otherwise I hide the cheese. (Josh is a minor cheese freak, which is harsh because I LOVE cheese but I can’t eat it anymore – it makes me fat. Bah!)
Warriors-related news: I start Tallstar’s Revenge in October which I’m very excited about because I don’t think we’ve ever gotten to know WindClan properly and they have a reputation as stand-offish and weak. I will change this. WindClan shall become as heroic as ThunderClan, ShadowClan and RiverClan! And then I start work on Dawn of the Clans, Book 3. Hurray! At last I get to find out what’s been going on at the beginning of cat-time.
Survivors had a fabulous reception – well done, Gillian Philip! I’m waiting for a copy so I can read it. I’m looking forward to plunging into dog-world.
Our editor at HarperCollins was thrilled with my first Seekers manuscript, River of Lost Bears, so I’m hoping to write another next year. I really fell in love with those bears. They were already fabulous characters, thanks to Vicky, Cherith and Tui.
Right now, I’m working on the last book in my series of pre-teen chick-lit, which I’m writing. It’s great to write comedy romance! Such fun
