Following the publication of my first book 'Archie, Jump!', I hope to have my second book, 'Archie Wait!', published in September 2021. This will continue Archie's quest for stardom as a jumping champion.
I shall be attending the Local Author event at Appledore Literary festival on 25 September 2021, to launch this new book. Additionally I am booked to have a stall at two Big Doggy Day Out Fete events run by 'A Doggy Day Out', (www.adoggydayout.co.uk) at Mount Edgcumbe, near Plymouth on 19 September 2021, and the other at Bicton College, near Budleigh Salterton, on 3 October 2021.
I started my working career as a teacher, and then I moved into the business world. I have worked in local government. More recently I have retired and now spend my time writing for children and undertaking voluntary work.
I have been inspired to write this book as I feel passionate about children learning to read at a young age. I am a Governor at a local primary school and regularly help children with their reading.
