Head on over to Secrets Club to find out more about Alice, Tash, Dani and Lissa.
Hi everyone - welcome to my website
Here you'll find out all about my books: how I write them, where the ideas come from, news of forthcoming books, what I'm doing next and lots of other things you may want to know! I'd love to hear from you - get in contact and let me know what you think about my novels.
Don't forget you can keep in touch with what I am up to through my blog (below) - I'll be updating it regularly.
Family life totally took over in May with the arrival of a gorgeous new granddaughter. I really must update my About Me page! But the good news is I am now ready to start writing a new “My Funny Family” book. In the past five years I’ve had five new additions to my family, so I’ve lots to write about!
Been busy with events lately but now am back at my desk. Have just finished my edit for “No Match for Dani” , the third book of the Secrets Club series, and am looking forward to it coming out in August. Before that the the third book of “My Funny Family” series will be out in June.Check out the lovely review of the very first book, “My Funny Family” below.
My Funny Family, by Chris Higgins http://t.co/t6THOhK1lK
Had a wonderful time last night at the launch of my latest book. Three little people decided to join me in my talk and readings. But one even littler person kept looking the other way. Thanks to Penzance Public Library all the lovely people who came along to join in the celebrations especially my editor Anne. Check out the photos below.
Did you meet me on “The Day I Met Suzie” tour? Check out these photos to see if you can spot yourself.
Spent last week on a whistle-stop tour around the country talking about “The Day I Met Suzie”. Hectic, crazy, exciting, exhausting, FUN!
Monday, 18th March, I was in Scotland visiting Bo’ness Academy, St Mungo’s High School and Grangemouth High. Tuesday, I was in Edinburgh at Holy Rood RC and The Royal High School. What a lovely warm Scottish welcome from everyone at these five schools. (Scottish students, you’re so grown up and your manners are impeccable!)
Then a fast train to Lancaster and Weds went to Kirbie Kendal School and Ripley St Thomas. (Loved your enthusiasm, you guys! Wish I could bottle it and bring it out for the days when writing is just a sheer hard slog.)
On to Manchester then and on Thursday I visited Manchester High School for Girls (What a great question and answer session girls!) and then Urmston High School for an informal chat with fans followed by a really interesting afternoon with Year 10s.
Friday, back in the South-West to Bristol schools, Henbury and Blackwell. Lovely way to end a really fab tour.
Thanks to everyone who made me so welcome, all you lovely librarians and brilliant bookshop people, especially Elaine and Suzie(not the one the book’s about!) from SilverDell Books and Peter and Frances at Urmston Bookshop.
And extra special thanks to the wonderful Victoria who organized it all. Can’t wait for the next one… Now what did we decide? New York…Sydney…Vancouver???
I’ll be posting photographs asap so keep an eye on this page …
I will be at the Edge of the World Bookshop on Market Jew Street, Penzance on March 30th, Easter Saturday afternoon at 2pm, talking about “The Truth About Tash”. Come along if you’d like to find out about my Secrets Club series and the rest of my books. See you there!
Humphry Davy School, Penzance are hosting an amazing Book Week with lots of exciting guests and invited audiences and things going on. Loved meeting up with Years 4, 5, 6 and 7 on Monday to talk about “My Funny Family” and “The Secrets Club” series. Looking forward to going back there on Friday to talk about my brand new thriller, “The Day I Met Suzie” with years 8 and 9.
Hundreds of Wallys (Wallies?) at St Mary’s C of E Primary School on World Book Day including all the staff. Good to chat about “My Funny Family” and the “Secrets Club” series, especially as it was publication day for “The Truth About Tash”.
All this week I’m having a blog tour for my latest book, “The Day I Met Suzie.” Join me each day by going to the websites below and reading my interviews:
Tuesday, 5th March
Weds, 6th March
Thurs, 7th March, PUBLICATION DAY!
Fri, 8th March
What a crazy day! Not one, but TWO books out today.

And for fans of the “Secrets Club” series, “The Truth About Tash” is also out on Thursday, March 7th.
How exciting is that!
