We are proud to announce that our very own Head of English, Mrs Clare Rees will soon be a published author. Clare’s debut novel, Jelly, is a “gripping” and “funny” account of a post-apocalyptic world in which a group of teenagers are trapped on a giant jellyfish.

Mrs Rees said: “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Chicken House on my debut novel. It’s been a really fun process so far and I’m looking forward to joining a fantastic group of authors.”

Publishing Director, Claire Wilson, from RCW added: “From the very first pages of Clare’s phenomenally funny, original and powerful novel I knew I was in the hands of an extraordinary new storyteller with a big future ahead. I’m absolutely delighted to be working alongside the Chicken House team on such an exciting project, and can’t wait to see this book come to life.”

Jelly will be available in the summer of 2019.
