At the moment, I'm just developing ideas: what's the problem, which animals are involved, how will Amy sort things out.

I'm also working on another book for writers. It's called "Scenes and Sentences" and will involve Future Proof - the plot I started developing in "Plots and Plotting". At the moment, I'm working out which topics to include. If you've got any suggestions, please let me know.(less)

Diana Kimpton Having a great week, thanks. The sun is shining and I've seen my first daffodil. There Must Be Horses is getting good reviews and I've worked out a plot for the book I'm writing next (which is a secret at the moment).


Krista Breen Hi Diana!

Hope your week is going well :)
