Scary Mary is on the go! 
I'm very excited, and feeling very strange, for the first time I am working on one of my own stories with a publisher! It's about a hen called Scary Mary...

My agent visited New York in November last year, and found a publisher who like my story, and now it's go go go as I have drawn the first set of roughs and cover ideas. The publisher is Tiger Tales and they seem very very lovely!
