Since Lockdown I’ve been working on the #DragonDetective series, other writing projects and online material. The latest of these is this musical collaboration with other authors to support bookshops. Please do buy books from your local bookshop or using hive.co.uk.
I recorded this one for Camp Bestival’s Stay at Home Easter Sleepover.
And this is a guess-along short story (in 4 parts) for young readers, parents and teachers to use. Young detectives everywhere are invited to solve it before Dirk Dilly, Dragon Detective solves it.
