Lottie Lipton: The Eagle of Rome and The Catacombs of Chaos are now out in the shops! To celebrate, here’s a trailer I made. Go share!:
I’ve been a busy little bee these past few weeks and here are some photos to prove it! I’ve been doing some school events local to me and here are a couple of lovely pics from my visit to Burrington School where I spoke to the entire school of 26 pupils (age 4-11), with more than half buying my books.
Hey all, I’ve just put a lot of new events on my events calendar, so head on over here to see what I’m upto. I’ll be at some Devon Libraries over the summer and have got lots of school visits lined up. Exciting times!
Announcing new cover madness! The Eagle of Rome and The Catacombs of Chaos come out on 28th July and we have covers! Check out their beauty below. The illustrations are as ever by the great Rachelle Panagarry and the words are by me. Big props (as I believe the yoof of today say) to Bloomsbury Education design for getting them done. Without further ado…
The blurbs are here! As the countdown to the new Lottie Lipton Adventures starts, the enticing copy has arrived and is up on websites the world over already (okay, I’ve only checked Amazon, but that’s pretty big anyway!). Here they are and be sure to pre-order your copy below or on this page:
Coming Soon!: The Catacombs of Chaos
Lottie has lived in the British Museum all her life – she thought she knew it like the back of her hand!

Perfect for developing and newly confident readers, Lottie Lipton Adventures are packed with action, excitement and puzzles for the reader to solve.
Coming Soon!: The Eagle of Rome
When a collection of Roman treasures comes to the museum, Lottie, Uncle Bert and Reg discover the legendary code of the Ninth Legion’s Golden Eagle. Can Lottie and her friends break the code and find the treasure before a ruthless treasure hunter gets his hands on it? Perfect for developing and newly confident readers, Lottie Lipton Adventures are packed with action, adventure and puzzles for the reader to solve.
