Book 3 cover

The third book in my All Teachers series of memoirs is published this July and Headline have just released an image of the cover:

All Teachers Bright and Beautiful continues the story of my early years working at a rural primary school in the sylvan Yorkshire Dales, and of village life, parenthood with two young sons and all that these things entail. As with the first two books there are lots of laughs as well as the usual cast of local characters plus a few new faces. Pre-order from Amazon. A bit more about the story here.

What else is happening? I’m…

  • just completing a children’s novel, which my agent is taking to The Bologna Book Fair
  • working on a non-fiction book about the Winter Olympics for Collins (for ages 7-11)
  • running poetry workshops in schools
  • co-writing The Reading Show with Alan Gibbons – a touring performance to encourage reading for pleasure among kids
  • planning some fun non-fiction titles
  • looking forward to leading a writers’ weekend in the Dales along with Adrian Plass
  • playing Peter in an Easter drama for local schools
  • walking 26 miles across the moors in a sponsored yomp for a local community cafe
  • organising some book signings for the coming months
  • wondering whether anyone will actually pay me anything for any of this…
