Kath and I are settled in our lovely Gosforth flat after a brilliant first week working in Gosforth Central and Gosforth Junior High middle schools. We also managed to fit in a return visit to our fans at Seaton Sluice Middle School and we’re still reeling from one of the biggest subsequent book-signing sessions ever! Such was the response to our books at all three schools, we had to get in touch with our publishers to request more books for next week’s presentations! However…no one’s complaining; the more fans we have devouring our spooky stories, the happier we are!


Whilst having a great time visiting the schools, we also made time to enjoy the area. Over the last few years we’ve stumbled on some great places to relax, enjoy a coffee and stroll around taking in the scenery. After visiting Seaton Sluice MS we headed straight over to the Coastline café just beside the Blyth Port. We also took some time out to drive over to Tynemouth and sample the best fish and chips in the world at Marshalls – straight out of the sea and into the pan as the locals say!


After a great weekend relaxing and recharging, we spent a second week in the North East visiting our great fans at Gosforth East Middle School (GEMS) where our great friend, Sue Lamberth, really looked after us. She and her husband even took time out to take Kath and I to downtown Newcastle to a fab Italian restaurant for a meal and a drink. But back to the GEMS school visit – we entertained all of KS2 on Monday along with the Year 7’s on Tuesday. Everyone seemed taken up with the new book  KRUSCHMEISTER – and the prequel to the story – SCABBAJACK. The presentation was repeated at Hexham Middle School on Wednesday and Highfield Middle School on

Thursday. Thereonafter I spent most of the time signing countless books for a host of fans, new and old. Big thanks to Sue Lamberth, Nikki Johnson and Keith Bell for hosting us so well in the usual warm NE fashi0n. It’s so humbling to find how many pupils love our books and send us so many fab e-mails.

A special ‘thank you’ to Adam from GEMS for being such a big fan. Adam almost had to use a wheelbarrow to bring in his books for me to sign!
