Yesterday was a genuinely exciting day, which rarely happens to me. A TOP SECRET project that I have been working on was announced to the world, so finally I am allowed to talk about it!
The news is that I am working on a very exciting and totally unique collaborative novel with six other brilliant YA writers. I am so hugely honoured and excited to be working with such a wonderful and inspiring group. I feel incredibly lucky to be involved.
So, the writers are: Sara Barnard, Holly Bourne, Tanya Byrne, Non Pratt, Melinda Salisbury, Lisa Williamson and me. The novel is called FLOORED and it will be published next summer (2018). The novel was the brainchild of my brilliant editor Rachel - it is the story of six characters, who meet by chance and whose lives become intertwined. We're calling it The Breakfast Club meets One Day.
One of my favourite things about this collaboration is that we are not going to tell who wrote which character. I am fascinated to see if people will be able to guess.
You can find out more information about the project in yesterday's announcement in the Bookseller. We celebrated the fact that it is no longer a secret by meeting up yesterday for lots of tea and chatting and a lovely lunch. And taking selfies in a lift. This gang are the best fun, basically. I am so incredibly delighted to be a part of it.
