I took half a dozen warm mince pies to my good friends Vittoria and Nino a couple of nights ago. It is the season of baking and we often exchange sweet treats. I enjoy Vittoria’s Italian dolce, and she enjoys my traditional British Christmas fare. We sat and talked for a while. She is very patient of my limited Italian, I’m getting better but slowly. During our conversation about my daughter and son-in-law’s upcoming Christmas visit, she got up and pulled my book “Princess Tess and her Mess” from her bookshelf. Tess of course is my daughter’s pup, and the furry four legged character in my book.
It made me happy and warm inside knowing my book is in their house. I don’t write to make money, but to share my stories. Knowing it is read and enjoyed in other countries makes me very happy.
Why is my human sitting at her desk staring at that picture and making her fingers run across those square things. They look like spiders. She talks to the moving pictures and they talk back to her. It’s not fun for me.
Here she is! This little scoundrel inspired me to write my first Children’s Book. Finally it’s finished, edited, illustrated and ready to sell.
Now I’m terrified.
This was fun to write, and the idea of making kids happy with this story thrilled me…now comes the test. Will anyone want to read it?
Watch out for for Princess Tess and her Mess on Amazon in the “Children’s Book” category. It will magically appear before the end of June.
Below is a little bit about silly old me!
Sandra was born a very long time ago in the North East of England. She was outgoing and adventurous child with an overactive imagination. From a very early age her brain silently recorded the story of her life as it happened. At the age of thirteen Sandra realized she needed to write that story down. She’s been writing ever since. This is her first children’s book, but I know it won’t be her last.
Sandra is retired now and living in Italy, but still writing.
