New Year, New Book

It is January the 3rd 2019 which means I can officially say I have a book coming out THIS YEAR. It’s taken me long enough – it’s been three years since More of Me came out in the UK but I handed in my copy edits on Christmas Eve.  I made some fairly major changes…

Librarians Save Lives

I had a wonderful evening last week, that both filled me with joy and left me sad and frustrated. 

Book Week 2018 (A bit belated)

I had an amazing book week earlier this year but I haven’t posted about it yet for reasons that will become apparent… First stop was  Torbridge High in Plymouth, where they matched their book of the week poster with my galaxy hair! This was such a lovely welcoming school, I had a fabulous day.  …

And the winner is…Bold, Brilliant and Bonkers.

Individually, it’s hard to believe you can do anything about it – that when those in power behave in…

Edinburgh Book Festival: 2017

Edinburgh International Book Festival

I am SO EXCITED!!! I still have  a week until I head up to Edinburgh for the festival but I can’t sit still. I’ve already had my hair done and my petticoats are packed. 

A Storm of Strawberries

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…

Shock News of the Thirteenth Doctor Who.

I’ve been a die hard Doctor Who fan since I was tiny and I’ve been stunned by the announcement of the thirteenth Doctor. In fact, it’s taken me a while to get my head around it. When I was a little girl, Doctor Who was one of my favourite shows on TV. I didn’t have…
