Mamgu’s Campervan Goes Out & About for Easter!


My new children’s book, Mamgu’s Campervan and the Knights in Shining Armour, was launched at WHSmith in Cwmbran at the start of the Easter school holidays, and then went on a trip to Smiths in Cardiff and Llanelli too!

Taking Mamgu’s Campervan out into Wales for the first time was a lot of fun and Helen Flook’s bright and cheerful cover design certainly attracted lots of attention.

A huge DIOLCH YN FAWR to everyone who came along and bought copies, and to Jason, Rama and Terry and their teams at the shops for making me so welcome.

Thank you to everyone who came along to WHSmith Cwmbran, Llanelli & Cardigan, and to Waterstones Aberystwyth & Carmarthen. And especially to Kayleigh, William & Martha, Owain, Tomos & Jacob, Miss Crane of Griffithstown Primary School, Jonathan, and Nia Griffith MP. I hope you all enjoy your books and thank you for the lovely Amazon reviews!

A Trio of Signings

I’ve had a lovely run-up to Christmas this year with three book signings in three of my favourite WHSmiths shops – in Cardiff;20161126_112339

There’ve been Welsh cakes galore – from M&S, who don’t burn their baking the way I reliably do –20161202_171118 and lots of interesting people to chat to. A huge thank you to everyone who bought copies of my books, and to the shop managers and staff. They’re all very supportive, and they’ve even agreed to have me back in the new year with my new book St. David’s Day is Cancelled. I can’t wait! But now it’s time to hang up my book signing antlers for another year!!20161125_211433
