Sarah Hadland and Lydia Syson

Sarah Hadland and Catherine JohnsonHello I have such a lot to post about and this deserves to go first. I had a marvellous afternoon with Sarah Hadland of Horrible Histories and Miranda and a room full of readers at the Dalston Town Tales event in the summer. I was lucky to have Sarah read and even luckier to have cub reporters from Hackney WOW – Hiba and Alma – interview us first you can read the text here 

It was a lovely afternoon for another reason, in the audience was Lydia Syson, who wrote one of my favourite books of last year  A World Between Us,

We’ll be doing an event together in a few weeks at the Wood Green Festival in North London. I’ll post details on the front page asap.

Apart from new book stuff, I’ve been busy writing my first draft of a TV institution. More when it’s safely finished!
