Since becoming a Mum I have realised that most of the time I have no idea what I am doing… there is no ultimate parenting guide after all.
But I have taken heart from this and become a bit more brave in general. As a consequence I am doing lots of other things I never knew how to do before either…
And my latest thing is actually ‘doing something’ with all the writing and drawing that I do. So I am self-publishing.
Here is a sneak peek at my favourite illustration.
I’m qualified to write (and draw) I suppose. I used to be an English, Art and Art History teacher. I have degrees in all those subjects. I won the senior English prize at Auckland University. I also recently won the KBR Unpublished Children’s Manuscript Award International Category with my story ‘The Lost Button’ – and all of this has given me a bit of a push in the right direction.
So here it is:
MY FIRST Illustrated Kids Book up on Amazon.
It’s called ‘I Think I Saw A Pukeko’ and it’s a conversation between two kids, or a kid and an adult, or a ‘believer’ and ‘non-believer’ (you decide). It’s fun and very short and my kids love it and I hope yours will too.
Please get in touch if you want a hard cover print copy ($20)
You can take a look at my first book here.
Thanks for all your support everyone. X
