It was the beginning, and an ending

Granny Jen is Missing

Through this kids book, #F #PS #MG, I address a common fear, as well as fearful behaviours. The great fear is being lost, or losing someone we love. In this story, two sisters show grit and determination to find their Granny. Despite, some despicable behaviour from their friend, the rooster.

Still very happy to have completed this writing challenge.

It was a real challenge, and made me write, write and write every day of the challenge. Even when we were on a water based holiday.  I needed that challenge.

Author spotlight

Writing a children’s book with an Australian identity, and theme, was important to Jennifer. Equally important was including messages – truths – that revealed themselves through the story. Like the not so friendly bird who solves the problem, the kangaroo, Joey, who is brave and makes a real difference, and Mr Christian, the rooster, who is having a bad, bad day.
