I want to write stories for children.

True stories, about journeys and transformations .

Stories that inform but also may inspire children to be more interested in nature and to be kind to animals.

 My neighbours own a beautiful, dark brown greyhound called Lia.

She used to be a working race dog. Every day she was forced to follow a strict exercise regime and she slept on a cold concrete floor. She had never been shown any kindness.

When Lia fell and injured her leg on the track she was heartlessly abandoned.

 But fortunately Lia was rescued by Bob and Sara who took her home and gave her lots of loving care.

I see Lia every morning in the field where I walk my dog .. she is now a picture of heath and  happiness.
