Happy New Year!
I hope you've had a good Christmas and are looking forward to 2012.
I have had a good year in 2011. This is a my favourite picture of 2011 that doesn't involve my family.
It is a small cairn I built on top of a mountain in the Arctic, when I was researching my book, Squad: White Fear in September. I built it for a friend of mine who had just lost his mum.
I have big plans for 2012.
They include author tours based around Fair Trade Fortnight (February/March), the launch of my new series (May), Euro 2012 (June) and the Olympic Football (August).
Also writing books about night running, spies, a haunted stadium, mermaids and... er... football.
I have dreams for Leeds United too, but after today's 4-1 reverse at Barnsley, I think I've got a better chance of winning the Nobel Prize for Literature.
