Iron Age, Jurassic, and Back to the Future

Iron Age

For this small time travelling post, we start at beautiful Cullykhan Bay, once the site of an Iron Age Fort. The fort features in SISTERS AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD, as does a slightly adjusted version of the cave above. The Iron Age is generally thought to have ended in 43 CE in Britain when the Romans arrived. That happened a little later up here. The book is set in 83 CE.

Back to the Future

And there’s now a release date, in the future, the 21st of September to be precise.

Edit: the book is out now!

The Jurassic

I went looking for squirrels in Aden Park recently.

I found dinosaurs.

Behind a yew tree.

They were only there for three days.

The dinosaur explorer event was clearly aimed at children, but I had rather a lot of fun looking for the creatures.

And now, refreshed, I return to my desk and the Iron Age, where I’m very happy to be.

Out now!
