Interviews published and grant for new novel

Writing Magazine interview with David Thorpe June 09 Writing Magazine features an interview with me in its June 09 issue. Download a pdf of Anita Rowe's interview with David. Also, the current issue of Judge Dredd Megazine (286) carries a long article on the development of the Marvel character Captain Britain, including part of an interview with me on my stint on the comic.

I have also won grant to write a new novel. The Drowning will be a novel about two sworn enemies - young teen boys - thrust together to survive in the wild when climate change makes them homeless. I'll be blogging about the process of writing it, and the research results. The £6,326.90 grant is from 'cyfle i greu' - 'chance to create' a scheme run by Powys Arts Forum under the Wales Assembly Government.

First, though, I need to finish the book I'm writing for Earthscan called: 'Environmental Home Refurbishment:
The Earthscan Expert Guide to Retrofitting Homes for Efficiency'. This has to be done by October and is supposed to be a definitive book on the subject!
