TOTAL NUMBERS
There are 65 original books plus ten bind-ups. If the individual short stories in my UN books are added to the novels it makes a grand total of 125 stories. I must say that I am surprised – I didn’t think it would have been so many.
I have sold just over ten million books which is a great testament to the publishers, editors, illustrators, book designers and all the other professionals who have helped me write these titles. I can never thank them enough.
