Alan Bradley

We listened this morning to Alan Bradley being interviewed on CBC Radio. He talked about his books and especially about the Buckshaw Chronicles, the adventures of Flavia deLuce, an 11-year-old aspiring chemist. I wrote about the first of the trilogy in April this year The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie and have been waiting eagerly for the next one.

Well, the good news is here. The second book, Tied Up in Strings is coming in March 2010.

Born in Toronto, he lives now in Kelowna with his wife and two calculating cats. I'm off to the library first thing tomorrow to pick up his non-fiction book, The Shoebox Bible.
