The Red Poppy!

I cannot believe it has been a whole year since I posted here. So much for me blogging Rothwell and Hilda's postcards on a weekly basis. I shall get back to it week...

I haven't been procrastinating- really! I've been busy illustrating. My advance copies of The Red Poppy have arrived (always the most exciting mail package!) and our book launch is on the 14th March 6pm at The Children's bookshop in Kilbirnie. Nipper (Molly) the dog will be there for patting and photo opportunities plus we will be serving suitable rations. My son (trainee chef) is making red cross Battenburg biccies especially. He made a trial batch, they looked great and tasted delicious. Plus of course I think ANZAC biscuits will be mandatory!
