The Witchypool Witches
It’s taken me a long time to find a moment for this… But SOUND THE TRUMPETS! I have finally finished a children’s book – with line drawings throughout – that I started some years ago and had to put aside for more pressing writing commitments.
I was especially pleased with the line drawings my multi-talented illustrator showed me after having read the book, and I am only sorry that I could only use a selection of them instead of the lot! Those featuring Algernon – which Emma (thinking it’s a dog!) agrees to walk for the Witchypool Witches after applying for the job – are my favourites. Needless to say, Emma has a very strong reason for agreeing to this “dog-walking” opportunity. She is desperate for funds to buy a special party dress, with only four days to go before the big day! Unfortunately, the witches have other ideas, none of which show the slightest promise of payment for services rendered.
“Emma and the Witchypool Witches” is available on Amazon as a 9” x 6” soft cover paperback book and as a Kindle e-book.
So now I must take a very deep breath and under pressure from those very kind readers who enjoyed the first “Customer Trago”, and who have urged me to continue with his rollicking, often bawdy, not to mention alarmingly dangerous adventures, and make a start on the second book in my Henry VIII Tudor Cornwall Customer Trago series. Unlike Ross Poldark, Customer is an anti-hero. He nevertheless gets the job done, more often than not without trying! The question is, will he marry the lovely Lucy Trenwith, or will the lawless Trelawneys have their wicked way with her – and him while they are about it? And what about the crumbling woodworm infested Wynehouse Inn he finds himself lumbered with as landlord, again without trying? I shall have to think very seriously about all of this!
Customer and the computer await. Time to get my head down!
