I just wanted to share a project that I have recently been involved in with some lovely bookish people! I have helped to write a children's book which in itself was thrilling. Yes I was a co-author!!! How cool is that! But, the best bit............all proceeds go to Alzheimers Research UK. My late father in law sadly passed away in 2006 from Early Onset Alzheimers and as a family we understand how crucial more research is to make sure that no one else loses a loved one to this cruel disease.
So many lovely and talented people gave up their time to put together this cute little book in order to help others. Help us by buying the book and raising vital funds for a worthy cause.
So, just what is the book about?
Little Kitty wouldn't exactly call herself a cat burglar. She just likes to bring back the occasional gift for her humans.
When they go away on holiday, Little Kitty has the house all to herself. She lazes on the sofa in the sunshine, explores the new neighbours' garden, and listens out for old Mrs Browne who brings over her dinner every day.
But, after a fur-raising run-in with a big black cat called Thor, Little Kitty soon realises its going to be up to her to protect the residents of Peppercorn Place from a real thief!
