If you have read my book 'No Place Like Home' and would like to know more about me and why I wrote it, well you've come to the right place!
The story about little Buddy is based on something that really happened to me when I was growing up. I lived with my parents and sister in a small town in the midlands in England. We lived on the edge of town, a short walk from the countryside. I have many happy memories of being outdoors, of summertime picnics on the downs, sledging in winter, of autumn walks with friends in the woods and along the canals.
I liked to bring things from my walks home with me, and this is something I still do - I have interesting stones and dried plants near my computer, as well as photographs that I take when I am out.
Once, we found a stray dog that had run away from a neighbour's house while she was looking after him. I imagined what might have happened to the little dog while he was lost and later told these stories to my children, who enjoyed them. So I thought it might be nice to share the stories.
I hope you enjoyed this book. If you did, you may like to look out for my next one which will be ready later this year and is also about family, animals and the natural environment.
Bye for now, happy reading!
