|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
In each of my books I attempt to alert young readers to a current issue so that they may have an epiphany about the way in which they live.|
As a result of their epiphany they might find an opportunity to reflect and improve the way they live on our wonderful planet.
My stories do not attempt to provide a solution but rather to stimulate thought.
|Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...|
My illustrator is Jenny Wood|
I knew of Jen’s work in my previous workplace and thought she was awesome (but also highly skilled in IT and project management ☺). After seeing her artwork on her Facebook page, I wrote to her to ask whether she would illustrate my story. Since then, I have been gob-smacked on a daily basis by her skills. From the gorgeous and quirky illustrations to the animations and the whole management of the project.
|This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)|
|“George goes to see the Prime Minister” is my first children’s book in a series called the Little Epiphanies Series.|
