“I loved reading Burly & Grum and The Tigers Tale. It was sweet and funny and meaningful at the same time, and the pictures were enchanting. I’m sure any animal loving youngster out there will love this funny but very serious Tale.” Jenny Seagrove, Actress and Born Free Trustee
I live in Essex in the UK with my son and two cats, Puzzle and Bud. Like so many people I've always written and had lots of ideas for stories but never thought I would ever be published. In January 2011 I helped to set up a writing group (Writebulb) and found out about Smashwords from one of our guest speakers, Penelope Fletcher. I remember being totally blown away by the fact it was possible to self-publish and a couple of weeks later finished a book that I started some years ago.
I've now published 3 books and two short stories in the Burly & Grum Tales one one story, 'Unlucky Dip' for young adults. One of the books in the Burly & Grum series 'The Secret City' is now a finalist in the People's Book Prize Awards so keep your fingers crossed! I will continue to write and self-publish - it's been hard work, but I've learnt a lot and met some wonderful people along the way and I have a great sense of achievement. If anyone loves to write and is hesitating about self-publishing I would definitely say give it a go!
