I’ve been back to some favourite childhood haunts for this one, and it’s set during a beautiful Mid-Wales summer. I’ve adored remembering the Welsh hills, paddling in the river Rhiw, exploring Montgomery’s ruined castle and square – all places that have inspired the setting.
I’ve also been chuckling away while drawing on some characterful people from my childhood to populate the novel.
Here’s a taster with chapter one. Poppy Jenkins is out this summer.
