It was great fun to be back in Dubai working in 12 schools across a 3 week book tour. I grew up in Dubai in the 1980s so it was very special to revisit as an adult, even more so that I managed to visit my old school Jess in Jumeirah!
The children produced some great work throughout the school visits and I also enjoyed carrying out promotional events in bookshops throughout Dubai. My mum and dad were also in Dubai at the same time, promoting their bestselling Mokee Joe series so it was great fun staying with them during my trip.
The Gulf News also took an interest in the buzz our books were making and decided to run a full page article and photo in their Sunday newspaper!
