The newsletter is the fastest-growing mailing list of the year, according to a lie I just made up. If you’re not on it you’re missing out on everything from exclusive news and competitions, to occasional pictures of me wearing hats.

You can also subscribe to the Events Newsletter here, which is designed for teachers and librarians who are interested in running author events, and who would like to get their hands on free story starters, writing tips and freebies every month designed to get pupils reading and writing.

The newsletters are sent out once a month and your details will never be passed on to anyone else. You are free to unsubscribe at any time, although obviously I’ll hate you forever and you will essentially be dead to me if you do…
