I have just started writing a new Around the World with Taylor Swift book and I’m looking for fans who have met her to share their stories.
If you’ve met Taylor or want to tell me what it is like being a Swiftie in your country please get in touch via email email@example.com
This is the third book in the Around the World series. I have also written the hugely popular Around the World with One Direction and Around the World with Justin Bieber books.
So sorry I haven’t blogged for the last two months… I can’t believe we’re in June!
With Zayn leaving 1D I’ve been so, so, so busy. I’ve written a new Zayn book that you’re going to love and it’s out on the 2nd July so you’ve not got long to wait!
Here’s the cover (hope you love it as much as I do)
I’ve loved writing this book and I just want to say a huge thank you to all the fans who helped me.
You can order the book here if you live in the UK or here from the USA.
Lots of people think that my first book was Robert Pattinson A-Z, which was published in May 2010 but I actually self published a book called Be the Best – An Inspirational Book for Young Rugby Players in October 2008. I wrote the book while I was studying my Masters in Professional Writing at University College Falmouth and used all the knowledge I had gained from being a rugby coach. I was helped by lots of amazing rugby players and coaches from around the world. I really loved writing this book and my only regret is that it didn’t get published professionally as I would have loved for it to have had colour photos and a more advanced layout.
I have always loved reading – I used to sit in the corner of the playground reading Enid Blyton books when I was six. I loved escaping into her stories. I was a huge fan of the Secret Seven books in particular. I had four shelves crammed with her books at home, I would collect them from car boot sales and from book shops whenever I went on holiday. I wanted to have a copy of every book she wrote but never managed it… which isn’t surprising considering how many she wrote!
According to the Enid Blyton website she was the author of:
- 186 novels/novelettes
- 258 character books
- 947 short story series books
- 267 education books
- 214 recreation books
- 187 continuation books
- 284 contributions
The first bit of writing I ever did was writing match reports for my rugby team when I was seventeen. Every Monday I would email the Widnes World and the Widnes Weekly News with the latest match report – carefully containing the surnames of every person who had played the day before.
I had started coaching my team when I was sixteen, a few weeks after finishing my final year at school. My Dad had been coaching my brother and his friends for a few years (they were under 9s) and one day while I was watching them train I was asked if I could step in and help train two young boys who had come along but were too young.
I was only doing it for a couple of weeks “until a Dad took over” but ended up coaching them for five years. We won lots of tournaments all around the UK – it was an amazing time in my life. Here’s a picture of us when the boys were under 10s and I was twenty. I was only just bigger than our prop Geoff!
