January saw the end of my relationship with my Agent, Kirsty McLachlan at DGA Limited. It was blow, but sometimes when one door closes a huge, massive pair of sparkling French windows opens. I am now signed to The Bent Agency NY with the lovely Heather Flaherty. It has kind of been like meeting a soul mate and I've never been happier in my writing than I am now. King of Crows in an intense edit and I've finally started writing something new (more on that soon).
Every Feather Bird Rescue is doing really well. We're into Spring which is also baby bird season which means we've been crazy busy. There have been some losses and they've hit us hard - I doubt they will ever become easier, but we've also installed a new disabled coop.
Skywalker has a new friend - Shadowhunter aka Captain Jack aka JJ - a jackdaw who moved in with us almost a fortnight ago now. He's still pretty nervous but Skywalker isn't one to take no for an answer and has started chatting away to him incessantly. I'm pretty sure Shadowhunter will be won over.
What else... oh I've started a vegetable garden. I've never been one for gardening before but it's actually becoming a new obsession of mine. I started off by putting a couple of raised beds up near the disabled coop to attract wildlife and give the birds something pretty to look at. Then I purchased a book which promised all I could eat in 3 square feet and now the possibilities seem endless. This image is just one small part of my vegetable garden which is going from strength to strength.
2015 has so far been a year of changes and growth - there have been some definite low points but the sun is shining and there is still plenty to look forward to so bring on the rest of the year!!!
