Coming Soon

Becky Bloomsfield for readers aged 8 – 11 years.

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.

Book Review…

 

 

Whilst it is entirely lovely to get book reviews from children, it is also thrilling when adults read and enjoy your book.  Here is a snippet of a recent review. I have had to edit it as there are spoilers!

‘I finished my paperback of Will’s War yesterday and found it such a great adventure! He really went through the wringer after he got placed on a farm then was forced to work on the ship. I wondered if Will looks up Elizabeth, Frank and Charlie in the future and even visits them when they are elderly or their grandkids?

Thanks for a fab book!’

Will’s War is shortly to be published on Kindle (possibly even free for a short time – shhh) I will keep you all updated!

 

 

Independent Bookshops….

As a debut author it is exciting and thrilling to find one’s book nestling on a bookshelf in an actual bookshop! Thank you Chard Bookshop for stocking Will’s War.

Happy Faces

It was so lovely to meet the children at Milborne Port Library and to see so may children enthusiastic about reading books.

We all had great fun investigating Will’s suitcase and working on a code-breaking activity.

From print to published

So here we are, today is the official day that Will’s War is published!!! It has been a long road and I have learnt many things. One of which is perseverance and determination. The other is to write lots, even if you delete it afterwards you still have something to work with. So I thought this was the end but in fact it is just the beginning. There are many more things to learn not least marketing! However, having got this far i’m not about to give up now. Thank you all for your continued support. Over and out.
