I am a newly self published children's author. I believe children should be encouraged to read and hold actual physical books. My stories help children to make sense of the world around them, ask questions and talk about issues in their lives. The stories are narrated by my cat Pickles (who has been labelled Britain's only guide cat) They are very easy to understand, cover topics in children's lives; bullying, disability, diverse family, loneliness, making friends, time out, feelings and emotions and so much more. As I am visually impaired and a wheelchair user Pickles, who we got when he was 6 weeks old, has been trained to assist me, this make the stories totally unique.
