Here it is: my first novel for children 9-12 years old. Published by Little Island, the stunning cover is by Lauren O Neill who has just won the CBI awards for her illustrations of Gulliver.
Her artwork is a perfect match for my story of twins, Starn and Esper who live in a world destroyed by volcanic eruptions. Until one day they find a book and the adventures begin.
The book will be launched by Alan McMonagle in Dubray Books, Galway on 30 June at 6.30pm.
There will also be a Dublin Grand Little Island Summer-Party-cum-Triple-Launch (of The Best Medicine, Gold and Wherever it is Summer) celebration with Christine Hamill and Tamara on 6th July at 6pm.
The venue is The Glasshouse, which is a garden room at the back of House, a restaurant/bar in a fine Georgian building on Lower Leeson Street, a few minutes’ walk from St Stephen’s Green. So SAVE THESE DATES.
