I’m delighted to have been commissionsed to compile a book of Shropshire Folktales for the History Press. I’ve just submitted the manuscript and looking forward to seeing what the proofs look like. The book includes thirty of the region’s stories, some old favourites and plenty that are new material for me. Lynn Rust has created some fabulous illustrations and Katherine Soutar of Dancing Cat Designs at Maws Craft Centre in Coalbrookdale is working on the front cover as I type! The book is due for publication in July 2011.
