Cock Eyed Optimist

Most of you are far too young to remember the film South Pacific. It was a lifetime ago and probably the first film I ever saw on the big screen with my mum. It featured a song called “Cock Eyed Optimist” which popped into my head today when I read my book sales report on Amazon.

I’ve sold 30 Copies of “Princess Tess and Her Mess” and that makes me so excited! It means the story I wrote, and the beautiful front cover illustrated by my daughter, is sitting on someone’s coffee table or bookshelf. Even better, the story has reached thirty children. I’ve had great reviews from adults too.

All of these things make me extremely happy. I don’t write to make money, it helps, but it’s not what motivates me.

I hope it made thirty children and adults smile. I want everyone to love Princess Tess. I think she has more adventures to share.

Reviews are great if you have time.

Thanks for stopping by, and stay safe!

Children’s Book – Tess Mess

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 Thompson

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.
