I'll be giving children's workshops based on Selkie plus a signing at the Steyning Bookshop on Monday 31 May during the Steyning Festival.  Follow the link for details: Steyning Festival - Literature 

Steyning is situated beneath the West Sussex Downs and there's a great walk from the town to Chanctonbury Ring along the South Down Way, with a view of the sea to the south and the Weald to the north.  Chanctonbury Ring was always a landmark for ships at sea. It used to look like this before the great storm of 1987 blew down most of its beech trees.  I was pleased to see that it's now going to be replanted, even though it will take another century before it looks like this again and I won't be there to sketch it.
