It may be Easter Monday – the last day that many people in the UK celebrate their Bank Holiday weekend – but I’m excited to announce that my debut book, The Secret Life of Foxes, is available to order from Pen & Sword right now!
Have you ever spotted a fox and wondered where it was heading? Or perhaps you want to know what all the commotion was the other night when you heard those unmistakeable ear-piercing screams? Or maybe you just want to know how you can tell if these elusive mammals have visited your back garden when you weren’t looking?
With a beautifully written foreword from Dr Jane Goodall DBE, The Secret Life of Foxes is written in a way that doesn’t make assumptions on the reader’s fox knowledge by using big, fancy, scientific words without explanation.
Whenever you see a group of the same species gathered together at any one time, there is a usually a specific name used to describe them. You are probably already familiar with a flock of sheep, a herd of elephants, and a pack of wolves, but what about the rest of the wonderful species we share this planet with?
Let’s explore some of the more weird and wonderful collective group names, as well as try to decode why they may have been given these names in the first place.
It’s my first day back in the office after having a relaxing week off, so I don’t really have enough time to write a proper story as the prompt requests, which is a shame. So, instead, I thought I’d share an (incredibly flattering) sneak preview of what will be published next Monday aka Dragons Day! I’ll also be posting and sharing the links and videos on here if anyone wants to find out how I ended up in Norway… in, effectively, a onesie, crash hat and goggles… you’ll be able to here!
Have a great day!
