Women’s Euros in Fiction

I’m delighted to announce that I will be writing a new FREE 10 part read aloud story with the National Literacy Trust during the 2022 Women’s Euros.

It will feature characters from my Roy & Rocky of the Rovers books: Rocky, and her brother, Roy.

‘Live’ chapters will be written by me and released a chapter at a time during the tournament.

Chapters will be released online online every weekday from the 4-15 July 2022.

More from the National Literacy Trust here.
