Lesley Hale was a deputy headteacher in a lovely Leicestershire junior school before deciding to spend more time on her writing. Born and raised in London, she benefited from a creative 1970s primary education, which in her memory consisted of reading fabulous books and making felt gonks. Luckily some rigor was introduced through attending a girls' grammar school, otherwise she'd never have got to university, where she studied History and Landscape Archaeology.

Lesley's love of history influences many of her stories. She also likes to travel and in 2010 took a year off to travel around Europe in a small van while spending time finishing her first novel, which is set in the Tudor period. You can read about her travels on http://charliedogcame

Many claims are made for the Zentangle. This method of creating abstract drawings, using repetitive patterns, developed by an ex-monk and a calligrapher, has variously been described as a way of promoting focus, increasing mental retention, reducing stress and stimulating creativity. It’s been likened to a form of artistic meditation, hence the Zen bit, and it has been recommended for improving... Read more of this blog post »

I've just finished 'The Feyguard' trilogy by Anthea Sharp. I think it was a 99p box set for Kindle, and it wasn't until I'd started that I realised there was a whole other trilogy before this one, so I had to slip into the stories sort of midway. In ...more

This was going long fine. I was really enjoying it and then it got close to the end and the plot just fell apart. Such a shame.
