Catching Up

front cover_finalLife has been very busy for me for over two years now, which is why I haven’t got on with this blog, or very much writing.

2016 will change this though, as more time on the horizon, and a book that has taken me nearly three years to write is about to be published. It’s been mentioned in my blog before, but now it is named and illustrated and I am on the final proof reading today.

So, here is “Eggs, Pegs and an Elephant” and a picture of the cover is above. Christina Boon has again provided some brilliant illustrations for me.  I will add links as soon as it is out.

Anyone for Pirate Treasure?

Arrr, shiver me timbers! Be there booty in the box?

Find out in Pizzas, Pirates and a Porcupine if the rascally band find the long lost treasure or not.

Available free to download on Smashwords, iBooks, Barnes and Noble Nook books, Sony books, and on Amazon for 77p.

Curious George by Margaret and H.A.Rey

Absolutely delightful eager-to-please monkey character – my two year old granddaughter is a huge fan of the TV series, and so am I. Just so-happy and warm-hearted stories. Colourful characters with The Man with the Yellow Hat, Professor Wiseman and a host of others who simply accept the young monkey for who he is.Lots of science for young people in there to, the weather, dinosaurs, practical details like how a well works and how a tree house could be built by (trial and error if George is in charge.)

I deeply envy the author for creating these stories.

I bought my granddaughter one of the books for Christmas and it is now essential bedtime reading (along with sticking of stickers.) Here’s the one I got, but there are several more I shall purchase as soon as funds and Easter/Birthdays come by:

The Ghostly Ghastlys – Print version

I am working on a longer book for 10 – 12 year olds – probably will be for quite a while, so won’t be publishing any more of the Ghostly Ghastly series for the time being. Here are the covers from the series in the meantime, and I am planning a print version for the six stories so far, combined in one book.
