A Blog Tour with Dee White, author of Letters to Leonardo

Coming soon! Children's author Dee White is embarking on a blog tour in two days to promote her new YA novel Letters to Leonardo.

Here's a message from Dee:

Matt Hudson (the main character from Letters to Leonardo) and I can’t believe that it’s only a few days before we hop on a Cyber Plane and start our blog tour.

It’s great that Matt has agreed to come because Letters to Leonardo is really his story not mine. On his 15th birthday, Matt got a letter from his dead mum – but she wasn’t dead.

After everything that happened next, it’s hardly surprising that Matt is shy of publicity. That’s why I’m so pleased he agreed to come. He’s asked me to do most of the talking on tour, but he will be popping up now and again to say what he thinks and ask some questions of his own.

Matt and I hope you will join us on tour at the following amazing blogs:
