"I am happy to report that the hut has had a magical effect on my fortunes. Shortly before moving there, I was dropped by my last agent. I tried writing children stories, but the agents resisted my charms. Then I moved into the hut... It was quieter in there, I could look out over open fields: I immediately started writing in a new way that was more playful, more expansive. I tried writing in a new way: I thought I'd let the characters talk, and I'd see what they wanted to say. 'I am Rory Branagan,' said the first, 'I am actually a detective...' I let him keep going. I sent off Rory Branagan's story to eight agents, five wanted to represent him. I chose the best. Within three days, Penguin were offering a three book deal, at 25K a book. Within three more, Harper Collins were offering six figures, for seven! I couldn't really believe it, but here I am, outside the hut, having just received the contract, for the work I did within it. Thank you English Shepherd's Huts! You have changed my life, and made it more twinkley, more rural, and more fun!"
