I've been busy with a variety of writing projects this year - my excuse for not updating these pages more often, of course, but also true!
I've given a talk for readers of Your Horse magazine at Bolsover Castle and attended the opening of the new Line of Kings exhibition at The Tower of London, for which I was a consultant.
I've also written the presentation pack for a new book of stamps on 'The Working Horse' for the Royal Mail's Special Collections for 2014 and just completed my fourth book on horses, which will be out next year. The title isn't settled yet so details of that are still to come.
I'm currently working on a collection of songs and a short story for a project based on the archives of the North Wales Hospital (Denbigh Asylum) for the North Wales Mental Health Research Project - no horses at all this time, which does make a change.
For more on the project, see: http://madnessofnorthwales.com/about/
I'm also working on a chapter for a collection of essays on the Duke of Newcastle, so the horses come galloping back pretty quickly.
And suddenly it's Christmas again, so I am offering 3 copies of 'The Horses', for £25 including postage this festive season.
I have a small stock of Horse and To Amaze the People with Pleasure and Delight for horse-lovers and also Teaching Creative Writing and Steve's Band - if you'd like to make up a package including one or more of these titles, please get in touch via the Book Sales page, and I'll give you a discounted price.
