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 Festival

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!

2020…

Sometimes it’s hard to believe in yourself, but believe I must. On that note I’m going to pick an inspirational quote for every month of 2020. To kick off January 2020 I have chosen a quote from Elenor Roosevelt.

‘It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.’

Admittedly I have shortened the quote and am using it out of context, but it’s meaningful to me and hopefully to all of you reading this blog.

Best wishes and Happy New Year!

Short Story Release

 

 

 

 

 

I’m thrilled to have a short story released in this Christmas book! The Lucy Wilson Mysteries, filled with monsters, aliens, mayhem and adventure.

The Lucy Wilson Mysteries is a Lethbridge-Stewart spin-off adventure inspired by characters created for Doctor Who by Mervyn Haisman and Henry Lincoln. This anthology has five stories by a range of 5 different authors. You can read my press release below:

The Mobile Army, written by popular children’s author Cherry Cobb. She says: “I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to write a Lucy Wilson story, having read the books I fell in love with Lucy as a strong independent character who isn’t afraid to stand up for her beliefs. I hope my daughter grows up to have the same outlook on life.”

Available now from Candy Jar Books, Amazon and all good retailers. A great Christmas present for kids and adults alike.
