When we moved to London two years ago, I soon realised that our neighbourhood is somewhat different from the rest of London. It seemed to me like Lambeth is a lifeless place for residents to sleep at night, go to work in the morning, and return in the evening only to cook dinner and go to sleep […]
but my schedule was a little heavy with work on my book than any other books. And so I started a new challenge for myself: I started reading just 30 minutes a day. Every time during the day or before the sleep I would put an alarm on my iPhone and got lost between the pages. Here are the five things that happened after I did this for longer than 2 weeks.
For many of us holidays are still here but my upcoming children’s book The Girl Who Wanted To Catch A Cloud In A Marmalade Jar is moving ahead. Just before the Christmas, I handed the manuscript to my editor and signed a contract with an illustrator.
