Elaine Young


Who am I? My name is Elaine Young. Born in 1945, I have always been ‘in books’ both reading them, and selling them. I worked in bookshops for 18 years; I have run a school library and am passionate about teaching children the joy of the written word.
Over the years I have jotted down stories and ideas, and I once (unsuccessfully) submitted a short story to a magazine. I had small children at the time and it was very difficult to find the time to write. Now my children are adults and I have more time on my hands. I am now a home executive and an aspiring author.I also began blogging a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoy it. My hobbies include sewing, photography, miniature doll's houses and cooking. But writing has taken precedence over these ( except maybe the cooking!)
It took 8 years to finish this book, I almost gave up several times, but I persevered and am glad to be able to cross 'publish a book' off my bucket list. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed the journey of writing it.
