What a remarkable journey it has been since I decided to put pen to paper and write my first children’s novel ‘The Convent Rules.’ With the support of my family, friends and my agent, it was published it May 2009 it has been a great success and a fantastic learning experience.
I had the book launch, a book signing at Waterstones (the Guildford High street branch), and even shared a book stall with the Guildford Writers group at the Farnham Christmas Fair. What an honour! I was kindly invited to a couple of events in aid of the Parkinson’s charity which were a great success too.
The greatest compliment has been when children have come up to me and asked me when the next book will be out, as they cannot wait, and also told me that I have inspired them to become writers! There could be nothing more rewarding than that.
My next book is with the publishers and will be out soon. It is called ‘Mystery of the Art teacher’ and has many intriguing characters in it like Matron-Not-So-Funny, the nun who cannot speak, the ghost of the shower cubicle and even a Princess. I will say no more as I don’t want to give the plot away.
So do look out for it. If you liked ‘The Convent Rules’, be sure to read ‘Mystery of the Art teacher’ and tell all your friends about it! Don’t forget to write a review and tell me what you thought of all the characters.
I must go and write some more now. Till then Keep Reading!
