Day off school... to visit another school

I've been at Oakwood School, Horley all day which was brilliant... if a little exhausting. I met loads of talented pupils and friendly members of staff, bored them to tears with the story of my life, then we all had fun telling whopping great lies. And what outrageous lies they were! Those guys could lie Verity Fibbs off the planet. And that is pretty near impossible.
Thank you everyone for making me feel so welcome. I had a blast. Honest.


Mmmm... I think it's time to take a break from drawing characters...
and have a cup of tea and a bickie.

Back to School...

Today is the last day of my Easter hols (Groan) so I'm doing a final splurge of writing and drawing before I go back to school. I've been working on so many different projects that it's been almost impossible to decide which to focus on. This morning I drew this character here, on the left, (she doesn't actually have a name yet. Any ideas?) who is having a really terrible time during the summer holidays. I'm kind of hoping I'll get to write the rest of her story when school breaks up in July (Yay!). Then I can sort her life out and give her a happy ending before we both have to go back to school in September (Groan).


Scarlett Dedd has revamped her blog, Scardeparted. Check it out...

Scarlett is off to America

Woohoo! I can't wait for the summer.
There are so many amazing
things to look forward to -
JubileeStreetParties, LondonOlympics,
birthdays and book festivals.
But more exciting than any of that
is Scarlett Dedd's publication in the US.

Hello America!
*waves madly at US readers*

Here's the cover. What do you think?
Great isn't it? :)

I hear Scarlett and her ghost mates are planning a bit of state-side haunting. Pop over to her blog for details...
