Mostly I have no news. But occasionally something happens to demonstrate that I don’t spend my days drinking too much coffee and writing too few words.

1) Very excitingly the U.S. paperback of “What The Nanny Saw” will be launched by Riverhead on July 2nd. The hardback came out last year and the cover is my favourite so far.

2) I’ve just written a short introduction to a feature about family holidays for the July edition of High Life, the British Airways magazine.

3) What The Nanny Saw” has just been bought by my Latvian publisher, Kontinents and should be published there next year.
