Read full description of the books Star-Crossed Rascals: Adventures of Rascals, Polly and Gertie.:When Pollyweena Grubble's parents go away for a week, Great Aunt Mabel comes to babysit. Polly can't wait for Auntie to meet her best friend, Gertie. But when Auntie discovers Polly and Gertie have chewed filthy bubble-gum they collected from the pavement, she bans them from playing together, ever again. Polly's miserable enough without having to eat Auntie's disgusting cooking. But if she throws it in the bin, she'll be in even more trouble. Well, no way is she eating that slop. When Auntie leaves the room, Polly stuffs the yucky food in-between the clean sheets in the lined cupboard. Nothing gets by mean Aunt Mabel. She discovers the filthy mess and sends Polly to bed with no supper. But the next morning, Polly sneaks off for a joyride on Gertie's new bicycle. As she sits in the basket attached to the handlebars, Gertie whizzes down the hill. Trouble is, Polly spots someone standing on the footpath, she yells at Gertie to stop. But Gertie never listens to anybody and ends up running their headmistress onto the road. Yipes! If Mrs Godbolt recognises them, they'll be in even more strife. 'Cause she's even stricter than Auntie.
Read information about the authorI was born in England and moved to Australia at the age of twelve. I had always dreamed of writing children’s stories, but due to childhood illnesses I missed an important part of my early schooling, and for some reason I slipped through the cracks. I didn't do very well at school and spent many hours outside the principal's office for disrupting the class. I left school at the age of fourteen to help look after my mother, who was ill at the time. As soon as I turned fifteen, I started working for a typewriter manufacturer in the city. My boss was a very kind and understanding man and he sent a typewriter to my home so that I could learn to type. I began writing about my childhood, but I had no idea where commas went, or even how to spell, so my stories were filed away.
I married at the age of seventeen, had a family, and then worked full time, but when I turned fifty, I helped my husband to build a brick house in the country. Once we'd finished, my husband bought me my first home computer. As I no longer had to work full time, I enrolled in an online IT course at TAFE. It took me over a year and I surprised myself with high marks. I then joined online writing and critique groups and learned as much as I could about writing for children. I spent every spare hour writing, reading and critiquing. I read and studied hundreds of children’s books and kept editing my stories until I felt confident to submit them.
My first story was my childhood memories turned into a fictitious children's adventure, which I called Star-Crossed Rascals.
I also volunteered for a wildlife rescue in Australia, and sometimes I add what I've learned about animals to my children's books. I also write New Adult Fantasy Romance and also Contemporary Romance.
So far, I have nine published books:
Fallen Angel (Prequel to Nathaniel Teen Angel) Ominous Series
Nathaneiel teen Angel (Book 1 Ominous Series)
Ominous Love (Book 2 Ominous Series)
Velvet Ball and The broken Fairy
Molly Gumnut Rescues a Bandicoot
Rascals Sing at The Opera House.
Double Trouble. (Adventurers of Polly & Gerty)
More stories in my Ominous Series out soon.
