Archie, Jump!


Meet Archie, a mischievous young terrier who loves adventure!

Archie’s owners, the White family, take him to training classes at the local community hall, but he simply will not do as he is told. One particularly disastrous evening means a hasty exit and no more training for Archie. He is delighted!

When Archie’s breeder hears all about his antics at the training class, she persuades the Whites to take him to an agility class instead. Archie is not best pleased with this new idea and thinks his family must be barking mad: more lessons and no one has even asked him if he wants to go!

With a local dog show fast approaching, Archie must put his paws to the test and take up this new challenge. Will he master the fences to become the new champion?

Archie, Jump! is a heartwarming tale which follows one unlikely hero as he overcomes challenges. It will be enjoyed by young readers aged 6-9 years.

Sales of both books are going well. My latest book, Archie, Wait! continues Archie's quest for stardom as a jumping champion.

I had a great February half term break, story telling at libraries in Devon and Torbay. My visits to schools for World Book Day week, story telling and running creative writing sessions, went very well too. I am about to start another series of school visits for the summer term.

Over the coming months I shall be promoting my books at local markets and dog themed events run by A Doggy Day Out.

My next event will be at the Frome Small Publishers' Fair on Saturday 2nd July 2022, part of the Frome Festival.

A brilliant book with lovely bright illustrations! I bought 'Archie, Jump!' for my god-daughter who absolutely loved this romp with Archie. I also read it - an easy read and you cannot help but adore this mischievous chap. We cannot wait for his next adventure!

A few funny bits especially when it said Archie loved chewing toilet rolls best and great description.My favourite bit was when Archie was barking and pulling on his lead because he wanted to see his brother .Just not long enough.

The book was so good that I could read it over and over again for a long time. It was that good!
