I came across this quote on the site of publishing guru J Konrath — it can apply to far more than just publishing — great quote!
"One hand should always be reaching up for your next goal. The other should be reaching down to help others get where you're at. We're all in the same boat. Start passing out oars."
'The Secret Formula' and 'Doc Gutson's Revenge' will be FREE on Amazon starting from Sept 7 for five days! Exciting!
I recently came across a wonderful feature from the City Room blog at The New York Times, where children under 12 are invited to submit illustrations relating to a recent news story. Some of the work, which is shown on the NYT website, are really great and it is so interesting to see the different perspectives taken by kids around the same issue. Take a look here and why not submit something of your own — can you say you have contributed to the NYT? Why not?!

Clare grew up in Constable Country not far from East Trimley where Kate Summers and Detective Vicky Allard solve their local mysteries and where The Bellamy Bird is set. Clare lived for many years on a street in Manhattan just like the street where Bella and Felix live although she was never chased through Central Park at night by a couple of failed fashion-world gangsters. Clare now lives on a high cliff next to a lighthouse in Australia where she plots and writes with her faithful chocolate labrador by her side.
