Messrs Roys and Murray at Valley Gardens MS - Rotherham Pals!

We have one book-signing left to do up here in Alnwick and then it’s all over! Our North East tour comes to an end. Kath and I have mixed feelings of relief – that all eleven schools have gone so well -but sadness that the tour has come to an end. We have enjoyed it so much.

Without exception, every school has welcomed us like old friends, which we are, and all of the pupils and staff have treated us like royalty, which we’re not!

A MASSIVE ‘thank you’ to everyone, staff and pupils at each school we’ve visited over the last three weeks, and especially to all our hosts/hostesses for looking after us so well. As a teacher myself for a long time before becoming an author, I know what a busy time it is at this time of year and I appreciate how valuable the time is that everyone gave up for us. However, we know how much our fans, avid readers (and even reluctant readers) get from our visits – so everyone seems more than happy! But ‘thank you’ again, all the same.


We have a little more time during our last day here, so we’ve decided to take advantage of the unusually warm and settled June weather and hit the beach today at Alnmouth. Kath has packed a picnic and I’ve packed my swimmers. I can’t wait to run into the waves and thrash about in the warm waters of the North sea. Think I’m joking? Well, I might just have to get Kath to take a pic…oops…she already did!
