The harvest is in and I am back in the Hosking Houses Cottage in Clifford Chambers writing again! What a joy it is to be back in this peaceful setting, hidden away from the demands of normal life, where I have written my best work. I have until the end of September and plan to make the most of it. There’s nothing like walking to focus the mind, turn over new ideas and take stock of a year, which has been momentous – with my musical I Capture the Castle making its world premiere at Watford Palace Theatre and touring to Bolton Octagon and Oxford Playhouse and my eldest daughter getting married. It’s good to be back!
