Okay, here's something to make those of you who know me well stare, point, and probably snort loudly with laughter.

I have published a new novel with Hodder & Stoughton, out now, called BERTIE'S GIFT.

It's written under the pen-name Hannah Coates.

It's the first person narrative of a beagle called Bertie who is separated from his beloved sister Molly at a dog shelter. He's adopted by a dysfunctional family with two grumpy cats, plus a mad poodle who lives next door. Can Bertie find poor Molly again and somehow 'fix' his dysfunctional family, despite only being a small dog?

A feel-good Christmas tale for all the family!

Hardback editions are in larger branches of Asda and WHSmith High Street, and also can be ordered from any bookshop or Amazon.
