The Edinburgh International Book Festival

Something to look forward to all summer long - the Edinburgh Book Festival! I'll be doing an event for schools on Monday 21st August at 10.30am, where I'll be talking about Welcome to Nowhere.

And on Saturday 26th August at 4.30pm I'll be with Gill Lewis, one of my favourite authors, in the Bosco Theatre in George Street, where we'll be talking about her wonderful book, A Story Like the Wind, and I'll be talking once more about Welcome to Nowhere.

Thank you!

A huge thank you to Daniel Jones, who decided to raise money for the Hope School. He ran a table top sale in his village. Some friends gave him items to sell. Someone made cakes, and others donated money. He raised £60! The money has gone to Jordan and is being very well used, I can assure you.

And a massive thank you, too, to the Granville School in Sevenoaks, who raised a whopping £800+ at their Easter Fayre. Be inspired, everyone! 

Here are some students and their teachers from the Al Rahlan School in the north of Jordan saying Thank you.
