I visited Norden High School in Rishton this morning to give a talk to about 100 children about reading, writing and my own books. I set a short story competition and will be returning there in October with the results. Was good fun, and a lot of great ideas came out from the students. It was great the way everyone got involved and took part in the workshop. I’m looking forward to reading all those stories now!!!

Tomorrow I’ll be visiting a high school in Blackburn to give a talk and set another short story competition. There’ll be over 100 children, so that means I’ll be judging between over 100 stories this time – I’m considering reducing the word limit a little!

I’m editing the book ‘Peter Black and the Craven Lake Mystery’ ready for the bigger print-runs which are to come. It’s funny because I wrote this book eight years ago, but I’m still enjoying reading it, and sometimes I’m surprised by parts of it. Sounds crazy but that’s the great thing about a book, there’s so much in there that you can read them again and realise you’ve forgotten parts of it – even if you are the author!
