My book released in December 2019 but I am looking to change the book cover to make it more genre specific. This book is part of a series so I will be looking for future covers in the future (The second book will be coming out this year.
I began writing around two years ago when my children asked me to create a bedtime story for them and there the lost lion was created. Soon what followed was the pelacrocomonkeyphant (a mysterious creature that is a blend of a pelican, a crocodile a monkey and an elephant) and teddy and the lost sock. My children loved these stories.
I would spend most nights sat by their beds reading these to them and seeing my youngest daughters face light up as she intently listened to the words I had put together with such fascination was the most enjoyable experience for myself.
I had the idea for my first novel around six years ago, however it wasn’t until I started writing bedtime stories for my children that I gained the confidence to push myself to try and write it down.
It has been a real journey writing my story, from plotting and scene setting to character development I have had to learn a lot as I went along. I find writing therapeutic and often after a long or busy day at work, once my daughter is tucked up in bed I sit at my laptop and continue to work on my stories which helps me to unwind and relax.
Mental health is my vocation and my passion and I try to include topics subtly within my stories with the hope that one day someone might pick up my story, realise that they are not alone in the way they are feeling, that it is ok to feel that way and to talk to someone.
I hope you enjoy my stories and I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
