Wonderful Warwickshire

I was so chuffed that Mortlock won the Warwickshire Book Award. When I started writing it, my hope was that it would be published, maybe by some small publishing house and I'd see my name on the spine and some people would read it and like it. So for loads of children to read it, vote for it, champion it, and even perform a presentation based on it, was humbling to say the least!

Mrs M often expresses our feelings through the medium of pies and so we had a big Sunday dinner today and this was the apple pie:

If you look closely, you'll see the bear and the ragged staff in the pastry. The bear has a little 'M' on his tummy.

Just to make the point a little more, here's the poster in the background too!
I'm so grateful to everyone who championed Mortlock and can't wait to get down to see you all!

Yeah, I'd like some of that pie too.
