I did try while I was writing the book but I was awful, I'm afraid. My wife knits so she helped me with some of the details, but even so I think I got a couple of things wrong.

So glad you enjoyed the book,
best wishes

Sorry for the delay in answering. The idea for the book came from a conversation with my editor. I wanted to write a funny, diary-style book. I am a huge fan of Sue Townsend.

Boxing and Feminism

I didn’t set out to write a feminist book. It just sort of happened. I was asked to write a follow-up to my 2014 book Boys Don’t Knit, a story about a boy taking up a non-traditional pastime (knitting, obvs). Girls Can’t Hit just seemed like the other side of the same coin.

But of course a book about a girl who takes up boxing HAS to be a feminist novel, because there’s so much to deal with. Body s Read more of this blog post »
