Check out the beautiful cover for forthcoming short story anthology Winter Magic, illustrated by Thomas Flintham!
I’m so thrilled to be part of this beautiful collection of frosty and magical winter short stories from a whole host of wonderful children’s writers, which has been curated by the brilliant Abi Elphinstone.
Here’s how publisher Simon & Schuster describe the new book:
Dreamsnatcher’s Abi Elphinstone heads up this gorgeous collection of wintery stories, featuring snow queens, frost fairs, snow dragons and pied pipers from classic children’s writers such as Michelle Magorian, Geraldine McCaughrean, Jamila Gavin, Berlie Doherty, Katherine Woodfine, Piers Torday, Lauren St John, Amy Alward and Emma Carroll, among others. An unmissable, enchanting treat of a collection that will be enjoyed for years to come, by readers of all ages.
I love stories with wintery festive settings, and I had so much fun writing my contribution to this anthology. It’s another historical tale, but this time it doesn’t take place in the world of the Sinclair’s Mysteries series – but instead in snowy St Petersburg in the 1890s…
Winter Magic will be published in November, but you can pre-order now from Waterstones or The Hive or Amazon and add it on Goodreads.
