Armadillo on-line review magazine
If you haven’t visited Armadillo, do go and have a look! It’s a quarterly review magazine, with news, in-depth reviews and interviews from the world of children’s and teenage books. I edit the teenage reviews.
Coming in 2013:
- The Writers’ and Artists’ Book of Writing Children’s Fiction, by Yvonne Coppard and Linda Newbery (summer)
- My first adult novel, Quarter Past Two on a Wednesday Afternoon, is to be published in September.
- The Treasure House will appear in mass-market paperback, along with reissues of At the Firefly Gate and Nevermore, all with beautiful covers by Lynn Hatzius.
THE TREASURE HOUSE is now available – published in May by Orion Children’s Books.
Nina’s mother has disappeared – just before Nina starts at her new secondary school. Mum has left a message to say she’ll be back, but neither Nina nor Dad knows where she’s gone, or why. When Nina’s dad goes off to look for her (how? where?) Nina stays with her two great-aunts, who run a charity shop. Soon, precious belongings of Mum’s turn up in the shop, things Mum would never choose to part with. What’s going on? Nina is determined to find out, helped by her friend Max – on the way getting involved with monasteries, llamas, a Chinese chess-set and a green crocodile. As more clues turn up, there are more secrets to unravel. Will Nina ever solve the mystery of Mum – and when she finds out the truth, will she wish she hadn’t?
Also from Orion: reissues of Catcall and The Sandfather
