So I have not written a plumbean since last February. I have a really really good reason. I have been writing, editing, rewriting, writing some more and finally finishing my second book! It is the story of the painter Vanessa Bell and her famous sister, the writer, Virginia Woolf. The outrageous brilliant artistic literary friends are all there and the story is set in glamorous bohemian pre-war London. It was huge fun to write and absolutely amazing to work with my magical editors at Ballantine/Random House in the USA and Bloomsbury in the UK and now it is coming out next January in a beautiful hardback with the pretty ragged edges that I love!
