New Nit Story!


I’m on tour right now, brainstorming a new head lice story with kids around Australia. I seem to be obsessed with writing about those evil little mini-beasts and the brand new My Life book, My Life & Other Exploding Chickens has a new Lewis Snow / Nit Boy story in it.

I’d like to put a Nit Boy story in the next My Life book, too (out March 2017) and I’d love you to help me write it. Below you can see the ideas brainstormed at All Hallows CPS this morning. If you have an idea for my next nit story, leave a comment on this post or over on with your first name and I will be sure to thank you in the back of the book!

May the nits be with you!

    The nits should take over peoples minds and you can't tell who is a nit and who isn't plus the nits should trying to take over the whole school.

    P.S my name is pronounced like e-meel (i am a boy).

    Hey Tom. I like the fusing of clowns and nits. Could there be a more evil mutant being? Thanks for your idea! Will be sure to put your name in the back of the next book out March 2017. T

    Hi Emile. Head louse mind control is such a good idea. After all the horrible things we have done to nits, this is the ultimate revenge. I wonder what they'd do to us. Will definitely consider putting this idea in the next story. 😉 T

    Caleb! Nits from the future is good. I wonder if they could tell us the lottery numbers? Or maybe nits are the only beings left. Maybe, like cockroaches, they're the only things that survive a nuclear meltdown or an asteroid hitting. Thanks! T
