Hello! Welcome to my site.
If you’re trying to catch a glimpse of a Dream Fetcher then you’re in luck. Midge, Vert, Harley and Snaffle are waiting for you over on the Dream Team page. If you’re into dragons, adventure and mystery, fly across to the Glint page and read all about my latest book for older readers.
Yes, Midge, Vert, Harley and Snaffle are heading for a cinema near you. I've known about this for months but I had to keep quiet until the press release was out. UK based Material Entertainment went public on 19th April with the announcement that they have secured the screen rights to the 'thrilling, fantasy-adventure children’s book series Dream Team by award-winning author Ann Coburn'. Material Entertainment will produce a live action/effects driven movie with the screenplay penned by Kirk De Micco, writer of Racing Stripes and the upcoming Space Chimps.
I’m thrilled that Material Entertainment has optioned the books – add to that the backing of both New Line Cinema and Entertainment Film Distributors and I am sure this will be a wonderful experience with a great final product.
You can read the press release here.
THE DREAM TEAM ARE BACK IN THE SADDLE!
You can catch up on their adventures when Books 3 and 4 in the Dream Team series hit the shops on 3rd May 2007.

POETRY IN TYNEDALE
A big ‘Hello’ to all the young writers from Corbridge, Hexham, Highfield, Ovingham, St Joseph’s and South Tynedale Middle Schools!
This month I’m in the beautiful Tynedale Valley, running poetry workshops for the Hexham Book Festival. I’m having a great time. The schools have all made me feel very welcome and the writers are creating some fantastic poems about animals or birds native to Northumberland.
All the poems will be entered into a competition and the winners will be announced during The Hexham Book Festival weekend, which runs from 23rd-25th March at the Queens Hall, Hexham. If you come along at 10.00 on Saturday 24th March, you’ll be able to meet some of the young writers and hear their poems. I’ll be there too, introducing the readers and spilling the beans about our writing workshops.
There are loads of other events throughout the Hexham Book Festival Weekend. If you want to meet an author, the Queen’s Hall is the place to be. Check out the festival website www.hexhambookfestival.co.uk.
