I have officially published a book of my own. The novella I’ve been working on ‘Guardians of Time: Kids in America’ is available to buy from Amazon for £2.07 and across different sections of the website. Hopefully, some of you that have been following me, and have been kind about my writing, will want to check it out.
It involves an ordinary girl called Mary, who has been raised by her father, alongside her two siblings, after her mother Sara died when Mary was eight. Her father made her think that her mother was ordinary and open but when Mary’s eighteenth birthday gets close, she comes to understand that there are a lot of secrets in her family.

I'm a thirty something woman who lives in the north of England. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, creating stories both written and verbal since childhood. While studying at Edge Hill College, I got several poems published by a small publisher in the USA, and in Europe. I have been part of several writing groups, and done quite a few courses in a attempt to hone my writing skills further. I love reading different genres of fiction, knowing that the best way to develop my own writing, and my vocabulary is by exposing myself to the different ways that other people choose to describe things.
The most recent writing course that I've been part of, run by a published author, included a exercise in which we were challenged to read things that we would never usually even look at.
It inspired me to take up a challenge. Namely to attempt to read at least one book by every author which is stocked in my local library. I soon realised that I was being far too ambitious, especially given the fact that every library rotates their stock too often for me to keep track.
I've decided to instead attempt to read a book every day, starting with a author whose surname begins with A, and ending with a author whose surname begins with Z. It doesn't matter what the topic of the book is, or if it's fiction or non fiction, everything is useful for me at the minute.
