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 Shadow 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 as you!
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
Charlie Sheppard, whose agenting and
editing powers are so magical they
almost qualify as superheroes.
Other people I must thank are:
at Random House Children’s Books,
particularly Annie Eaton, Clare Argar,
Lucy Walker, Laura Harris, James Fraser
and all those people I don’t
know but who clearly work very hard.
The wonderful illustrator, Sandy Nightingale,
who has brought Shadow 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.
