Publication Day and Events

Publication Day was 7th May

I am a bit late with this but it has been a hectic week, to say the least. The Fairy in the Kettle Gets Magical is now published and available, worldwide and online, in all good books shops. It has been lovely hearing the reactions and feedback to this, the latest addition to the series, and it has been great to meet fans from previous events as the events for this book have got underway. Upcoming events are listed on my website and this weekend I am off to Waterstones in Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy on Saturday before heading across to Benmore Botanic Garden on Sunday for their Open Day.


WalkIn’ Cafe, Spittalfield – Sunday 12th May

It was great to be back in Karen’s WalkIn’ Cafe on Sunday. After reading The Fairy in the Kettle Gets Magical the fairy colouring and crafts came out and the wands and fairy finger puppets went down a treat.  Parents made use of the cafe and the children finished off their afternoon with a fairy cake and juice!



Waterstones, Princes Street, Edinburgh – Saturday 11th May

I was delighted to be kicking off my run of book shop events for The Fairy in the Kettle Gets Magical in Edinburgh with three planned readings throughout the day. As always, each reading was followed by fun arts and crafts; we made our own fairy finger puppets and wands. There were, of course, the usual colouring sheets with images from within the book. Unfortunately, it was so busy, I didn’t manage to get any pictures of the event but here are some pics I took before the event started…and some of the lovely wands the children made especially for me!


Muirhouse Library, Edinburgh – Wednesday 8th May

I had a lovely morning with the Primary 1 pupils of Pirniehall Primary School in Edinburgh. They came along to meet me at Muirhouse Library where I read The Fairy in the Kettle Gets Magical before answering their many and brilliant questions! An enthusiastic group who blew me away with their questions!
