NEW! Coronation Street Blog: The Book

This week, the Coronation Street Blog will celebrate its 9th birthday online and is celebrating by launching Coronation Street Blog - The Book!

This unofficial Coronation Street companion book is an exciting mix of some of the best writing from our team of writers posted to our blog.

Each member of our team (even Fat Brenda!) has picked their favourite pieces of work and we've put them all together in a great little book. The book contains exclusive interviews and opinion pieces too.

Written by fans for fans, this book presents some of the most incisive, funny and engaging, writing about Coronation Street from fans that you’ll ever read.

We pay homage to current characters and say goodbye to older ones. We rave about things we love about the show and rant about some of the things that we don’t.

 In short, it’s a love letter to Coronation Street.

We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we’ve all enjoyed writing it!

The book is available in paperback and as an ebook from Amazon.

The award what I won

To my first ever awards bash today where I had my best frock on to receive an award.

The ceremony was the North East Museum Volunteer Awards 2016 and was held at the Great North Museum Hancock in Newcastle.

Unknown to me, I had been nominated for my voluntary work at Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens and Monkwearmouth Station Museum.  I work behind the scenes so I'd been nominated for the Hidden Treasure award - and I won it too. 

I can't tell you how proud I feel to have won the award, but also, to have been nominated.  I love my volunteering work at the museums and really feel passionate about it too. I do it because I love it a lot. Volunteering with Sunderland museums one of the most satisfying and rewarding things I have ever done in my life.

To have that passion rewarded with this nomination - and to actually win the award - feels amazing. Absolutely fantastic.

I am celebrating with tea and cake and I might just have a little beer later, too.

I've always wanted to tell my own stories

 
I'm not just in, but also on the cover of, this week's People's Friend magazine.  There's an interview with me about being asked to write the magazine's first ever soap opera, Riverside... 


And I have a short story in there too, all about a very special pair of shoes.

It's in the shops today.
