I’m absolutely honoured and thrilled to be the subject of a long interview in the Guardian today! Justine Jordan spoke to me last month about ending the Murder Most Unladylike series, looking forward to The Ministry of Unladylike Activity and why I think writing for children is so important – you can read the whole article online here!
This is such a rare and special thing for a children’s author to get this kind of coverage, and I’m so pleased to see it. It’s been wonderful to read all of your positive responses to the news about The Ministry of Unladylike Activity, too – it’s making me so glad to be returning to this world!
By the way, I’m seeing that a few of you have had your pre-orders arrive early. If you have read Death Sets Sail, please don’t post about it here. I’m going to be putting up a spoiler post early next week, where you can tell me what you thought of the book – but until then, keep your lips sealed!
