What a brilliant day it was in Crawley for the book signing. Although the sun was shining and the children were out making the most of the glorious weather, I did get to meet many interesting children in the store.

Deni and her team looked after me well and gave me a prime location at the front of the store. They gave me an extra table for the children’s activities and even put two chairs for the children to sit on.

I met children from many schools in the area. Some were Vale school, Milton Mount, St Matthews, Seymours primary and Aranside.

The activities were well sought after and I even had some teenage girls who asked if they could do the colouring in! Many books were signed and bookmarks were handed out.

An enjoyable day for all.

I look forward to meeting the people of Crawley again with my third book.
