Torquay Museum: an exhibition of dragons. 9th March- sometime in June
For the first time ever most of the artwork from Tell Me a Dragon has been gathered together in one place. Combined with beautiful things from the museum’s collection this exhibition shines. Signed books are available from the shop and I will be attending a closing event just before the show end. BEWARE the gallery has curious opening hours. School visits are welcome.
The exhibition will be moving to Hornsey Library at the end of June and is available on request for libraries, galleries, museums. Contact me to request the show.
22nd March Opening of Beast and Beauty at Blue Ginger Gallery, Cradley, near Malvern.

April 18th -21st Holkham Hall
I will be reading in a yurt and painting in a bookshop at the hall which does look to be so wonderfully full of exciting things, including deer and horses that the organisers will struggle to keep me seated. There are sand dunes and deer and seals and sea and beaches. All that and stories. Perfect for Easter. And there may even be hares. Happy to sign books and the shop with have plenty so do come.

On Monday I will be at the library, talking about words and pictures, my next book, the one with bears in, and maybe reading from The Wild Swans, which will be a look in to the future work.
Something very different at Number Seven, a walking book club. Do come if you can. Will be reading from East of the Sun, talking about the book and also reading from Wild Swans which will be published in 2015.
Number seven is a wonderful gem of a gallery and bookshop on the very edge of wild Exmoor
