I just wanted to share with you my great big thank you to Science!
I received my first COVID inoculation on Thursday and I feel great. It’s been a long year. Here in the UK and it feels as though lockdown has gone on forever. So I am very happy and relieved to see more and more of my friends, colleagues and family being vaccinated, knowing that, by the summer, we can all begin to return to some sort of normality and see each other again.
You’ll be pleased to know that I’ve kept myself busy for the past year. Since the COVID pandemic began, I’ve written A Light in the Mist and Leopardstar’s Honor. I’m rather pleased with how they turned out.
I suspect you will adore the last book in the Broken Code series, (published Nov 9th 2021) although I don’t know whether you’ll be entirely prepared for twists and turns we lead you through. The Erin Team planned it so brilliantly that even I was surprised as I wrote it.
And I think I’ve done Leopardstar justice. As one of my favourite characters, I wanted to explore all the complexity and contradictions of her leadership of RiverClan. I hope I’ve done that and that you will love her story when you read it in September.
For now though, I hope you are well and looking forward to a summer you’ve earned. Everyone has been very brave for a very long time. I hope you’re giving yourself plenty of treats and encouragement. It’s been a difficult time but the future is bright. ❤️
Love and best wishes
