A couple of months ago I applied for a job which was advertised on the Scottish Book Trust website. I didn’t think I had the right experience – but I was really pleased to be offered the job. Here’s a bit of the job ad….

“Scottish Book Trust and Home-Start are seeking to appoint a published picture book writer and illustrator to embed a love of book sharing with young children, giving parents confidence in their own reading and ideas for their own storytelling and creative writing.”

I am just at the research and planning stage but am already totally inspired by the books I have been reading! And a little daunted. The project is being evaluated by a team at Edinburgh University. And as part of this evaluation process I will be updating this blog as a sort of weekly diary of how things are going – this being my first post. I feel like i’m on the cusp of something really incredible – whatever happens it’s going to be a brilliant experience…
