It's been an extraordinary couple of months since Nicci Gerrard and I began John's Campaign at the end of November 2014. We have the devoted help of Sean and Francis and also our children  but all the same it's been overwhelming. Nothing can entirely stop us writing of course -- Nicci and Sean are busy on the next Nicci French, I've managed a GCSE York notes revision project and a short story (Black Flag) which will be published in the summer issue of the Maritime Quarterly but Strong Winds series 5 is looking at me reproachfully and I suspect Nicci also has projects shoved (temporarily) to the back burner. The campaign feels so hugely worthwhile ... if you'd like to know more please visit its website or find us on facebook or twitter. Back soon, I hope.
