Patrick Ness: Virtual Writer in Residence

Booktrust have a new online writer in residence scheme, which will run for two years, with a different author every six months. The first writer in residence is children's author and award winning author, Patrick Ness. Click on the following link: www.booktrust.org/Writer-in-residence-blog to find out more about Patrick, and about his writing. Read Patrick's latest post on the release day his latest book, The Ask and the Answer, sequel to The Knife of Never Letting Go. And don't miss his tips on writing series, which is down-to-earth, sound advice for all would-be published authors. Patrick's enthusiasm for reading, writing and living is contagious and I for one, will be a frequent visitor to the blog. Well done to Booktrust and Patrick for a great parnership. I can't wait to find out who the other writers in residence are going to be, but will be sad to see Patrick leave.
