I have had loaned to me a handwritten diary in beautiful script, of the first two years of a baby boy's life in London, 1889. Luckily the handwriting is easy to read and it is a privilege to take a peek into the life of this family. The father kept daily notes and added photos or newspaper clippings to the diary.
Once I have had time to digest this snippet of life, I plan to write a story based on this family and the events that took place. It will be wonderful tossing around ideas about who should tell the story and where that journey ends.

I love writing for children although I write short stories and articles for adults too. I have had three books published, two are educational readers, but would love to have a trade book published.
