My best work yet!

My wife says that "The Island of Mad Scientists" is the best yet of my Emmaline and Rubberbones books. This may be true - after all, after three books I may be approaching a level of basic competence.

Then again, it may be because there's a tortoiseshell cat in it. A heroic tortie cat.

The Island of Mad Scientists!

My wife never reads my stuff before it's published. That's fine, as I don't read hers in advance either (and never in the case of her PhD dissertation, fine piece of work that I am certain that it is). But now - since we have ONE copy - she's reading "The Island of Mad Scientists" - and gives it a thumbs up (so far - it may take a sudden lurch towards mediocrity).

There's a seance scene in it that I think is the funniest thing I have yet written.

I found this blog --

-- and it's mine, dammit!

I just haven't actually done anything with it since, er, a very long time.

The next book, "The Island of Mad Scientists" is out in August. I received the first advance copy and it looks great. It has a map of Britain in it and everything - although it features places that don't actually exist.

I promise to write more from now on.

Well, I could hardly write less!
