Story text complete.

The new Penny story is now ready to send off for a final check. My illustrator is working on the pictures and all I have to do is find a cover!

Meanwhile I am still waiting for amazon to show Penny Down the Drain as available.

As soon as the shops open I’m going to have to launch it properly. Everything is waiting , nowadays. Waiting for a new little dog, waiting for a chance to go for a meal, waiting for the opportunity to see our family and waiting for the second jab. I do wonder whether people will treat us differently after that. It would be nice not to have to wear a mask but that seems too much to hope for.

At least it does feel a bit more spring-like. I’ll see if I kept any happy pictures.No, I deleted the daffodils but I do have a blue sky one, with our resident seagull!

I am a retired schoolteacher now writing novels in Worthing where I live with my husband. After eight locally based relationship novels I have now written a children's story which could be considered a pastiche of Beverley Nichol's works which I loved as a child and still remember fondly. " Penny Down the Drain" may remind folk of " Alice in Wonderland " or " Narnia." but it is set in the 21st century. Our two sons are similarly creative as one is a journalist and the other an actor. When there is no pandemic I am the publicity secretary for Worthing Friendship Centre and listen to live music , folk and jazz.
