A group of published UK-based authors and illustrators of picture books, children's and YA.
I find it quite hard to switch off, so it took me a while to (almost) master what it takes to get me to relax and put my work behind me until the next day. I have quite a few things I like to do when I’ve finished a day writing to help me unwind:
It’s quiet and relaxing and I get a real sense of achievement when I finish something. I’m definitely not an expert, so it’s also fun learning new things.
I have a huge TBR pile and not all that much time to read. I do read at least a little bit every night, though.
I love to walk, whatever the weather. I take my little cocker spaniel Freddie with me on some lovely routes.
TV shows/box sets
I love watching (and re-watching!) Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. Also really enjoying Sleepy Hollow, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood and Dracula at the moment.
I work part-time at Lush, so I go there sometimes.
And other times I sit down to make evil plans.
What do you do when you’re not writing? Thanks for stopping by!
