Once again my blog has been sorely neglected as things have been manic here. In July me and my partner upped sticks from Bristol and bought a pad by the sea in sunny North Devon. We both have family here and both love the beach so decided it was high time we moved back to the coast. Since then work has been unbelievably busy. I've just finished the Children's book 'The Mouse That Learnt to Love Cheese' for Edam cheese and Beattie Communications, which is due to go on sale soon and will hopefully help to raise funds for the National Osteoporosis Society. I've also had a big commission from Oxford University Press which just finished last week for one of their teacher resources text books. Currently keeping me busy is 'My Big Book of Ghosts' with Campbell Books, which is so much fun to work on and a Christmas themed novelty book with Ladybird books. There's also been a few fun monster briefs from Caterpillar books as the monster series is still growing! Another ongoing project is a series of book covers for Pan Macmillan Young Fiction. The covers are so much fun as they feature one of my favourite subjects; dogs!! Speaking of which.... This is our new permanent office assistant Taz.
