rather long list of thank yous
First of all, I must say a very big
thanks to you for finding this website.
And huge thanks to all of you who
have read Samuel Blink and
the Forbidden Forest. I thought
you did so brilliantly, and put the
book down in precisely the right places.
If only all my readers were as good
I must thank two very exceptional
people, who played a very big role
in getting the book out there. They
are my agent Caradoc King and my editor
Nancy Paulsen, whose agenting and
editing powers are so magical they
almost qualify as superheroes.
Other people I must thank are:
at Penguin Putnam Young Readers who
clearly work very hard, and are brilliant
at what they do.
The wonderful illustrator, Peter Ferguson,
who has brought Samuel Blink
and the Forbidden Forest
to life in the most exceptional way.
The brilliant team at A P Watt, who
include such wonderful human beings
as Elinor Cooper, Judith Evans, Christine
Glover, Teresa Nicholls and Linda
And last but not least Andrea, my
wife, best friend, co-worker and the
only person prepared to listen to
my mad ideas about one-eyed trolls
at 4am in the morning.
