YA panel in Leeds

I’m delighted to be taking part in a YA fiction event at Waterstones, in Leeds, next month. I’ll be sharing a stage with four other young-adult authors at a panel discussion, followed by Q&A, on the themes of identity, diversity and mental health in teenage fiction – issues which are central to my first two YA novels, Flip and Never Ending.

Zoe, an excellent fantasy writer, has recently released Frail Human Heart , the final instalment of The Name of the Blade trilogy. And I can highly recommend Hayley Long’s new novel, Sophie Someone, which I read recently and enjoyed very much.

The event is at 7pm on Thursday October 1st at the Waterstones branch in Albion Street, Leeds. Tickets are free but must be reserved. For full details, please click on this link to the shop’s website.
