OK, so I’ve come out of my long period of digital aestivation and returned to my blog and to various social media platforms.
Rather excitingly, a new version of Hannah and my Christmas maths book is out today! There’s a new chapter about cake, so that’s nice.
There’s also a US version this year, in which we spell things differently and provide extra info on bizarre British festive traditions (though how they get through the day without detonating a small explosive in a cardboard tube and fighting over a pack of mini-screwdrivers, I have no idea).

Episode Four of the Little Written Podcast is out. At only ten minutes long, this is more of a bite-sized offering than the previous entries. This episode features Michael Rumney, the writer of Bricks, one of the eight one-act plays that have been selected for the festival:
I’m intending this to be the first of a series of episodes where I talk to the writers involved with Page to Stage 2016 (I will try to persuade someone to interview me, at some point!). The next one should be out pretty soon, so keep an eye out for that.
