Writing a book means that you get to know all the best cafes in your area. And this morning I've been at my new favourite, the lovely Russet Cafe in Hackney Downs is the perfect location for an author dealing with lots of red pen from her editor!
It's been an exciting and busy few months. I've been putting the final touches to my book 'Work on Your Accent', which is due to be published by HarperCollins in August 2012.
I'm so excited about the project. I've been co-authoring with the wonderful Sarah Shepherd, and with the help of our fantastic editors I think we've created a really useful practical guide. It's going to be a must-have for anyone who speaks English as a second language and wants to learn about British accents and pronunciation.
More to come on that soon. For now, I better get back to work!
