I’m afraid I don’t know who I am. Usually I can tell that people (children, generally, but children are also people) who contact me have been reading the Derek Landy interview or something about Jacqueline Wilson, and they are under the impression I am them.
This week I heard from a charming young man who loves my books and he is doing a profile on me for school and the school would like me to visit them. Again. It seems I’ve already been. They will pick up any travelling costs I may have, although my fan might be wrong on that.
My research tells me the school is in Nova Scotia. I’m really looking forward to it.
Someone who might be in Notting Hill – or she might not – is SH, who contacted me (see, I’m really very popular) and said she felt like applying for that job in Notting Hill. I wished her good luck.
I’ve not heard from her since.
Nor have we had any more contact with dear Clecky…
To end on a happier note, above is the winning book from the Salford Children’s Book Award, Sky Hawk by Gill Lewis.
