An escaped Buffalo. In Scotland? What?


As an author, it's always exciting when a new book comes out. However, this one has me more excited than most. This is my first picture book. 

Meet Bertie, Scotland's very own wee escape artist. The books have just arrived and I'm blown away. Barry Diaper, the illustrator, has done a stonking job, making the wee guy a bundle of cuteness. The illustrations bring my story to life.

He was well and truly launched at Waterstones, Dundee and Waterstones, Stirling on Saturday and the kids loved him. Adults are also falling in love with him at first site. I'll be honest and say I'm humbled at the response.

He doesn't hit the shops properly until 16th November but here's your chance to get a personalised signed copy before the date. You can do so through my website which has a sparkly new look and store.

You can also preorder through Amazon or at Waterstones or any bookshop. If you are in Dundee, I will be doing an event with Fiona Veitch Smith, author of the Young David and Young Joseph books at CLC Dundee on Saturday 10th November between 10.00 and 15.00. Bring the kids along to meet Bertie, Hezzie, Ari the Alpaca, Chloe the Cow and Sharon the Sheep. All these animals star in either Bertie the Buffalo, or Fiona's books. There will be readings, activities and treats for the kids.

I am sure you will love Bertie as much as I do.

If you are looking for Christmas presents with a difference, then signed personalised copies of Bertie, or any other of my books, would fit the bill nicely.
