Where is Dakota anyway?
I've been invited to a gala ceremony, to collect my award medal - in Dakota, USA.
We get to visit Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Monuments, and there's a book signing at the Great American Book Festival on 2nd September. Hope to see some of you there.
This view of Sudeley Castle and St. Mary's Church is from Belas Knap, near Winchcombe.
Readers of the novel 'Belas Rift' will know it as the place where the rift originates.
This is quite a long video, 20 mins, so feel free to skip through if art is not your thing. But I know lots of arty folk like to see live demonstrations of how a painting develops.
When I watch this it almost looks like it's being fast forwarded, but I know it isn't because I did the narration live and the speech is normal pace, I must just work fast!
I like watches, any sort of watches really, but especially old or unusual ones. So when I was asked to photograph these 3 books, I kind of got sidetracked and some of my watches sneaked into the shot.
Belas Rift my fantasy adventure for younger readers just received another editorial review.
"Belas Rift is an enjoyable fantasy adventure that grapples with the tensions between technological advancement and respect for natural elements. The bonds of friendship, kindness, and respect for others create a synergy between the fantasy world of Chelldrah-ham and modern-day England..." Foreword Clarion Reviews. 4 stars out of 5, 17th March 2017.
