We call it Bear Day!

I have officially christened the 6th August as Bear Day because it's my birthday! I'm officially 25 now and I feel extremely grown up, even had a talk with my friend about mortgages the other day THAT'S how grown I am.

I've been trying to get into more schools on the book days, you know - Roald Dahl Day, Children's Book Week, World Book Day etc but I don't understand schools. You would think they would be gagging for writers to come to their school. I mean when I was at school, the only writer I met was Michael Rosen, who is fab but I never met any other author and I would of loved that. J. K. Rowling is never gonna come to the schools so be happy any writer does! Anyway after time spent sending out emails getting responses like yeah, this sounds good blah blah I'm now going to stop forcing the school thing. I have a website, twitter, fb even an instagram now so if people want me they can holla.

And someone did. A radio station called Colourful Radio wants me to come in tomorrow to give a LIVE talk for their book corner!!!! They messaged me via my website and I am so excited, I just hope I don't say anything stupid or swear....

Life is pretty good right now, everything that was stressing me out earlier this year has now flipped and is looking grand. Decided that I'm going to take more control of my opportunities after experiencing too many disappointments and false hopes sooooooo I have created a Saturday Arts School for young people called Co-Star Arts! Offering Dance, Singing, Fashion, Creative Writing, I mean everything so we launch on October 5th and I am beyond excited. We already have young people interested so this could turn into something amazing. The best thing is I'm doing it with my mates, it just clicked one day  - why are we chasing people to help them? We have the talent, they should be coming to us so BOOM here's Co-Star Arts. Check it out on or Twitter @CoStarArts and of course we follow back.

Went to a 31st birthday party which was a bouncy castle party. I don't have normal friends.

On to the 3rd book of Emily Knight. I just figured while I'm waiting on Raimondi and Campbell to get me a publishing deal, I'm going to just write as many stories about Emily that my brain can think off.

I'm teaching so many dance classes right now, I'm sure I'll drop a dress size. Win Win.

I finally saw Buckingham Palace. For some reason I thought it would be covered in gold. Almost got arrested for coming past the gates. Maybe there should of been a sign? Or even some rope? Silly policeman.

I know in my last blog I insulted the name North West. It is still a stupid name but she is soooo cute!!

The VMAS. Miley Cyrus. That is all.

have finally realised at the age of 29 that just being myself is the way forward in life. Not like I thought I had to be someone else but I guess I wasn't sure whether to be my authentic self. I am loud, funny and opinionated and in an industry like publishing, sometimes I feel like I have to tone it down but since winning Trailblazers and being invited to so many events and getting the best opportunities, I realised that my work and my personality is what people are taking a shine too.

The biggest lesson I've learnt? I thought I knew what being busy meant...until I started a publishing house.

Being at The London Book Fair as a speaker and an exhibitor - both for the first time - was amazing. I felt so valued. I felt what I had to say and how I thought was important. We had back to back meetings and our main goal was to find a colour printing company for Hashtag, which we did. But what was so fascinating is companies we had approached as we were setting up Hashtag, who were …

England were not ready for that level of sass.

In less than a month I will be 30 years old. Oh gosh.  On the plus side I am having a Wakanda themed bash so that should be fun. My only worry is my outfit is being made for me and have been working out more so I'm just hoping the fit is still okay. I am trying to be more positive about turning 30. I think I ain't done too bad in life and it can only get better right? Still waiting for my McMansion but hopefully that comes as soon as 7am strikes on the 6th August. Hey if you don't ask, you don't get!

Loving this beautiful weather! I'm sitting in my garden writing this blog and thinking why have I not done that before? I ordered some garden furniture of eBay and then an extra chair from Ikea. Then eBay tells me that the seller that I brought the garden furniture from may or may not be legit. What?! But the latest delivery is 10th July so I have to wait to see if it comes. So now I'm sitting outside with my 1 Ikea chair minus the table and umbrella. I just can&#…

I swear when I wrote Drake, I literally heard Soulja Boy's voice saying, “DRAAAAAAKKKE!”

If you are reading this that means that you survived January! CONGRATULATIONS!!! Isn't it just the worst month? It's dark, cold, everyone is broke and it drags on for years. Even those born in January are annoyed because no-one can celebrate with them. So glad it's over!

I started 2019 with visuals from Chocolate City Comics. I have wanted to work with them for about 2 years. They are so sick and I think I sent a DM on Instagram (which they ignored) but a few months ago I spoke to them on Twitter, they checked me out and wanted to work with me. Initially I just wanted to get some original content for the Emily Knight books but they knew that I was talking to production companies, and they know pretty much all the best people in film! What a coincidence! They spoke to a very popular actor, who I can't say at this stage, but it's someone that I always wanted to play Lox Knight. He really liked the Emily concept and wants to meet with me once I have my pitch ready! T…
