By Kathryn Evans If you don’t know me very well, you may not know that as well as being a writer, I also run a soft fruit farm with my husband. Last year, the world of words and the world of fruit collided in the most serendipitous way. I was asked to do an event…

I picked up the Manifesto on How To Be Interesting, and then Am I Normal Yet because I wanted to read a few more Usborne YA books and get to know the neighbours. One more reason to love my publisher. Holly Bourne is my kind of writer – honest and playful and prepared to dig deep. Right…
I’ve never read so much historical YA in one hit and there’s more to come! Here are three of my favorites so far I’m almost finished reading Lucy Coats Cleo too, another cracker- my brain is learning so much stuff it may burst!

My absolutely lovely critique pal, Jeannie Waudby, launched her debut novel – One of Us – last night. I had day release from the farm and was so excited I travelled up early. My journey to London was enlivened by the presence of three young men travelling to Soho for a Drag Queen Competition.
