UKYACX2016 and other news



Hello all! This evening on Twitter I could finally share the news that I am going to be part of the UKYACX 2016 event at Newcastle Library on Saturday 17th September alongside some other brilliant YA authors. With the tagline, ‘Books, Authors, Readers, Cake’ this event has to be a winner!! What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon? I’m looking forward to going to Newcastle as it’s been a while since I’ve visited that neck of the woods.

Below is a list of the other YA authors I will be joining on the day. It’s so nice to see some fellow Scots on the list!

Roy Gill  Cat Clark   Kirkland Ciccone   Olivia Levez   Lindsey Barraclough   

Nicole Burstein    Fletcher Moss/Martin Griffin   Jane Brittan   Sara Grant   

Perdita Cargill   Honor Cargill  Donald Hounam Paula Rawsthorne    Leo Hunt   

Kerry Drewery   Emma Pass     Liz Flanagan    Sue Wallman   Rachael Lucas 

Ellen Pheathean     Katherine Corr   Elizabeth Corr    Alex Nye    Patrice Lawrence


In other news I am going to be a sort of ‘Writer in Residence’ at the Inverclyde Booked! Festival (Edinburgh International Book Festival on the road!) which will take place at the Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock on Thursday 25th and Friday 26th August. I will be helping out during both days, facilitating creative writing workshops with local High School students and I get to introduce some big YA authors on stage (and hang out with them in the Green Room where, if I’m lucky, there might be more cake…) You can find out more about this brilliant book festival here 

That’s all for now, but I’ll be back on here with more updates soon!
