I bring you double cartwheel-worthy news! I am writing a brand new Girls FC story. This one won’t be in paperback form but will be part of the Premier League Reading Stars package schools can buy. My story (as yet untitled and unfinished) will be available to download in instalments, designed to be read out loud in class, later this year.
Jenny-Jane (5th girl along on the back row) and Megan (in the green top) are the main two characters in the new story. Jenny-Jane appears in book 7 of Girls FC So What if I Hog the Ball ? and Megan kicks off the series with Do Goalkeepers Wear Tiaras?
I’m thoroughly enjoying visiting Lornton FC and all my girls again. I’ll let you know when the story is finished. Other exciting news is that I have been asked to deliver the ‘author’ part of the PLRS scheme at two major football clubs: Newcastle United on January 23rd and Manchester City on the 30th. I’ve been to St James’ Park in Newcastle once before, many years ago, but it will be my first visit to the Etihad Stadium. Exciting stuff!
