Gypsy Cradle JanFor those of you that enjoyed the first book in the series “Gypsy Hunted” you will be pleased to know that Gypsy Cradle, book 2 is progressing nicely and will be available for pre order in just a matter of weeks!

The first draft of a book cover design has arrived, and although it needs some tweaking (I’m not keen on the font and kerning or letter spacing) I can reveal it to you today.

Here it is.  Feedback, comments, thoughts, questions?

Casting for Gypsy Hunted the Movie

What’s an author to do on Christmas Day lunch?

If you’re like me, of course you discuss casting for the movie version of Gypsy Hunted, which I dream one day will be made.

Thanks go to two people very close to me on this one.  My sister Carla and my son Conan.

They’ve both read the book and understand the characters very well, in fact judging by their casting choices, they know them better than I do.  They are perfect!

Here are the judges choices:

Gypsy Shields – Kiera Knightly (Casting by Carla) Keira_Knightley_333035



Connor Reardon – Chris Hemsworth (Casting by Andrea)

Leah Lumsden – (Gypsy’s Sister) – Natalie Portman (Casting by Carla) natalie-portman

And there you have it!  Well done team love your work!
