Looking back at my writing year

I've been privileged to have read so many incredible books this year. Among my favourites have been The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith, The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton, Hideous Creatures by S.E. Lister, and Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies by Hilary Mantel. Thanks to my local library, I have been able to delve into so many different worlds upon which my imagination has thrived, and absorbed so much great writing that will hopefully help me in my own work. 

Speaking of which, it's crazy to think that I've put out two books of my own, completed some early drafts of a third (leaving to rest for a bit) AND started work on a fourth. I didn't think I'd be able to do so much, particularly since September when I started teacher training. I don't know if I'll be so lucky next year, when I know the course will get more intense, but I'm grateful for the time I have had this year to spend in other people's worlds as well as constructing my own. It makes me even more passionate that people, particularly students, come to value books and their imagination thrives as a result. 

I just want to thank everyone who has bought and read my books so far. I have cherished and appreciated your feedback and your sharing with the people around you, and I hope to bring you many more exciting stories over the years.
