A Cool Review for Shine in the Guardian

Shine by Candy Gourlay
'A precious and important novel that also explores exile from neighbours, family and country. The book is about reinvention and the faces we present to the world, whether it be in person, on a postcard or on the internet, all wrapped up in an exciting and perfectly paced story with a disturbing and dramatic climax.'
Philip Ardagh, The Guardian

Portsmouth Lit Quiz 2016

I made a resolution this year to document more of the events I attend on my blog. I'm now behind by a month, but hey, better late than never! Here is a photo story about the Portsmouth Literary Quiz this year. It was such fun ... until the quiz began to ask questions about books written by the guest authors. Oh the humiliation!



Thanks to Peter Bone, School Library Service Manager of Portsmouth, Colin Telford of the Hayling Island Bookshop, my fellow authors Ali Sparkes (Carjacked), Jamie Thomson (Dark Lord: Teenage Years), Jeff Norton (Metawars) and the teachers and librarians who made the day work like clockwork!
