My name is Penny Estelle and I was an elementary school secretary for 21 years. I heard every excuse and story in the book when kids would be sent to the principal. I promised myself when I retired I would write stories about kids and that is just what I did.
I am retired with my wonderful husband and we live on a fifty-four acre ranch in Arizona on solar and wind. I am the “greenest” person and I know, even if I don’t want to be!

There is another novel in the review stage but in the meantime you can follow my ramblings on my website. In fact, if you register on awwilson.com then I'll let you know when more stuff is available - and I promise I won't bombard you with emails.

Winning a tin of chocolate in a national essay competition at primary school inspired Christine Stovell to become a writer! After graduating from UEA, she took various jobs in the public sector writing research papers and policy notes by day and filling up her spare drawers with embryonic novels by night. Losing her dad to cancer made her realise that if she was ever going to get a novel published she had to put her writing first.
Setting off, with her husband, from a sleepy seaside resort on the east coast in a vintage wooden boat to sail halfway round Britain provided the inspiration for her novel Turning the Tide.
Christine's novels include, Turning The Tide, Move Over Darling and Follow Me (July 2014).

Berend Van der Poll
I was born in South Africa in 1979 and discovered my love for writing twenty-three years later. I find it very easy to create good characters, because each one of them is created using a part of me. As a child, it was hard settling down and making friends, because we moved around a lot. When I am not writing, I am enjoying fine pencil art - something I have been doing since I was seven years old, and spending time with my beautiful family.
I live in Fish Hoek with my wife, Melanie, and Tyler – our son.
