So happy to share my story ‘The Park’  about a mysterious lady in the park, and the power of friendship and art, has been published by Kookie Magazine.

A hugh thank you to one of the editors Nicky and the rest of the team, for sharing this work.

You can preview the first part of the story and see the delightful illustration for it by Suzie Mason here KOOKIE PREVIEW

It’s Raining Launches

Join us to celebrate the launch of these fantastic anthologies for children aged 6-11 years.

These collections are packed with short stories and poems to entertain, enchant and thrill.

We’re responsible writers, so promise you’ll not be so scared you can’t even sleep, but maybe instead, you’ll be full of courage and spunk to face that which you fear.

Thanks to Share your Story and to Creative Kids Tales for all your hard work as well as to all the contributors!

I am delighted to have contributed to both these anthologies and look forward to sharing my work with you.
