A little delay in publishing this, as it’s been party conference season. So, while my allotment is full of harvest, I’ve been travelling to Manchester, Birmingham and, this coming week, Glasgow to sit inside hotels and conference halls with politicians instead of picking grapes and the last of the runner beans and raking leaves. I [...]
Relationship break ups are never pleasant and along with who gets what in the vinyl collection, for pet owners, there is also the dilemma of “Who get’s the dog?”
As with children, the dog could be traumatised by the fragmentation of the family circle. Although the decision over the car, or the sofa is often acrimonious [...]

It was the father of the nation’s birth anniversary, and a public holiday at the beginning of the long festival weekend [...]

Leigh is the author of the bestselling Grisha Trilogy – Shadow & Bone, Siege & Storm and Ruin & Rising – which reached its hotly-anticipated [...]
