The People's Friend Magazine and a Friendly Blogger Award
Thank you Susan @ http://susanjanejones.wordpress.com/ for this award. Sue awarded me for the My Little Pony stories I wrote a few moons ago and for my Cresslethwaite stories in The People's Friend magazine. I think the next Cresslethwaite story will be in the Winter Special out in January next year.
So many of my Blogger Friends have this award already so I'd like to award it to the People's Friend Magazine 'cos, you know, it IS a Friendly Friend.
I had my first publication when I was eight – a silly rhyme in my school magazine. A few years later I started writing children’s books - from board books up to short novels for girls and boys aged 8 - 10. As well as my own titles, my published books include licensed character titles and are a mixture of story/activity books, Annuals, a Sylvanian Families video and series books under an ‘umbrella name’ (I wrote 8 Animal Ark books as Lucy Daniels).
Nowadays I write short fiction for women’s magazines and Pocket Novels – “family and friends” stories set in the 1950s and also contemporary romance. My six Pocket Novels are also published in large print books by Ulverscroft and there is a new one coming shortly.
Also coming shortly is a Collection of Broome Park Prefab Village stories.
I live in a farmhouse on a sheep farm with my husband, Peter. We’re owned by Tim and Ted, our 2 Rough Collies, visiting wildlife and the sheep who graze in the moorland meadows outside my study window. The farmhouse and the animals often appear in my stories.
While I write, Husband up the Hill scratch-builds Historic Racing Cars in miniature. On show here: BRM Mk2 and Maserati 1949 Click on the picture to see more scratch-built miniature historic racing cars from the Posner 1950s Collection
