Falling into Fear Supported by Burwood Park Foundation for the Deaf
I very much enjoyed the Children's Writer's & Illustrators conference at Oxford this summer.
Falling into Fear has been choosen as Children's Book of the Month at Ottakers, Sunderland.
Falling into Fear, my new children's book, is now published.
Catherine is a deaf girl whose mum is seriously ill so, she finds herself staying with grandparents for the summer. At first she is alarmed to find that she keeps slipping back into the past: she learns what it is like to be bombed in a war, to live as a Roman slave and to encounter wolves. But Catherine's experiences teach her to come to terms with the difficulties of modern, everyday life.
