Exciting news!! Becky Bloomsfield official release date is September 30th 2021. To that end Radio Cardiff have invited me onto the show to talk all things books. So don’t forget to tune in and chill out!
“As I enter the kitchen, I see Penny standing at the cooker, stirring a large pan of Bolognese sauce and now she’s wearing mum’s apron. I clench my fists as I catch Dad smiling at her, the way he used to smile at Mum, his sea blue eyes crinkling at the corners.“
Ever since Mum died life has been hard for eleven-year-old Becky Bloomsfield, but everything gets turned upside down when Dad brings home his new girlfriend, Posh Penny!
Not only does Becky feel like her mum is being replaced, but Dad no longer seems to have time for her either! Everything becomes so much harder when she is accused of stealing and falls out with her best friend Cassie.
Will Becky get her dad and her best friend back? or has life as Becky knew it changed forever?
I’ve been working really hard behind the scenes getting this book ready for publication. It’s been great fun and hopefully soon you will get to meet 11 year old Becky and her younger brother Milo.
I have written a short story for this collection of lockdown-inspired Lucy Wilson short stories. Available now for pre-order, and will be released in two weeks! The royalties from sales will be donated to #NHS charities and Candy Jar will double this amount! How amazing is that!
An extract taken from the press release:
Our only female writer for this collection is Cherry Cobb, who successfully contributed to last year’s Christmas Crackers anthology. She says: “When Shaun asked me to write ‘Flower Power’ for this book I leapt at the opportunity, firstly because I can’t think of a better cause than raising money for the NHS and, secondly, I know that lockdown is proving a challenge for many children and adults. Reading is a great way to relax and escape from reality for a time, and with Lucy Wilson by your side you can be sure of so many great adventures along the way.”

Earth is in #lockdown, but for Lucy Wilson staying home doesn’t mean staying safe. Dinosaurs, killer plants, even Meme Lords – some enemies just don’t respect social distancing. A great read for adults and children alike.
And so the season begins! I love going to book festivals, so it’s a complete honour when I’m invited to take part in them. The best part is chatting with kids about the books they read, and what makes them choose them. Is it cover design? The blurb? Or have they heard of the author from someone else. Reading for pleasure is a lifelong habit and one which should be encouraged. Our libraries are doorways to other worlds, a safe space, and are free! Now you can’t get better than that!
Looking forward to meeting the other authors taking part and to meeting new readers!
