Having been unwell last week I am pleased to be back blogging again and even more so as I have some exciting news to share: tomorrow is the launch of the first in a wonderful series of books for the Wildlife Trusts in which I have a piece of writing! The Spring anthology is a mixed anthology of old and new works exploring the many facets of spring on our shores and I was thrilled to have a piece about spring in my local deciduous woodland accepted. I am particularly pleased to be featured alongside such writing greats as Shakespeare, Hardy and Austen as well as some wonderful present day writers like the editor Melissa Harrison, Kate Long and Sir John Lister-Kaye. More than this though, I am among friends; I know several other contributors well and am happy to share this achievement with them.
The book is available through my website as well as a number of more widespread outlets and the money raised by its sale will benefit the Wildlife Trusts.
