Samples and Examples of my children’s books

Children’s Blog

I have decided to start a new blog for younger readers as some of the writing on here is not suitable for children and I would hate to have them come across it inadvertently.

It will take a while to get it all sorted out but anyway it’s at

3 Things That Might Have Happened – Free Kindle download

For three days starting tomorrow 3rd April the children’s collection of short stories will be free on Kindle.  Just the thing for the Easter Holiday trip.

How James Became a Hero:

When confusion and anger are all around James is confused and frightened.  When it seems that he may be the cause of the trouble he is desperate to put things right.  Can he fix the world before the fighting and fury become totally uncontrolled.
Simon and the Secret in the Shed

Simon decides to tidy the garden shed.  Who are the strange visitors and what exactly do they want from him.
Stephen

Stephen is running away from his unhappy home life.  When he meets Sirius on the road he can’t possibly know that this is the start of a wonderful new existence.

These stories are probably best for young reader aged from nine years and upwards.  There is some violence, some fear and peril.  There is also magic and wonder.

Daisy and the Dust Angel Illustrations

Daisy and the Angel

Now that Rags and Jenny are sorted out – and what fun that was to write.  I have to wait for the Muse to please come back and throw me some more crumbs.  In the meantime I thought that I would share some of the images from my children’s books Daisy and the Dust Angel.  They were done by lovely Angela at http://www.studioanjou.com/

Finding lost dogs is work for the big angels!!

Lost toy soldiers, now that's work for a dust angel

It was a fancy dress party and all the little girls came as fairies.
