The sequel to Susan Price's imaginative tour de force, The Sterkarm Handshake. The Time Tube is back on-line, and FUP are back in the sixteenth century, out for all they can get from the moronic peasant-folk, the Sterkarms. The moronic peasant-folk who destroyed all their plans and invaded the twenty-first century last time around...But this time FUP have everything under control. This is a whole new bunch of Sterkarms, and they're not going to get out of hand. After all, this time they have the ultimate weapon - love. But do the Sterkarms see love quite the same way? Just how much faith can you put in a Sterkarm Kiss?
On the day I was born - in Oldbury, in Britain's Midlands - my father was given a cast-iron typewriter, as payment in kind for a job he'd done.
It was, he insisted, an omen.
At the age of four I announced to my aunt and grandmother, "I'm going to be a writer when I grow up!"
I kept my word. I've published over 60 books, and am now a 'hybrid' writer, publishing both independently and conventionally.
My book, 'The Ghost Drum' won the prestigious Carnegie Medal.
