WHAT OUR READERS SAY
Fantastic! It's a heartwarming tale with a clever twist. I absolutely love it and I cannot wait to curl up at Christmas time and read this to my little boy - I know it's going to be a festive
Not just a wonderful story but a very important message behind it!
My 5 year old really enjoyed reading along and enjoyed all aspects of the story.

Elephants In The Custard
There was a buzz of excitement about writing, due to the variety of styles and topics within the book. Some of our most reluctant writers couldn't stop talking about the stories there were going to write!

Don't Look In This Book!
Sam's world changed in 2014 when he became a Dad. Having never thought of writing books, he was dramatically inspired by his children and the new universe he’d entered into:
"A heart-wrenching conversation with my eldest son, on our first Christmas together compelled me to write Santa's Wish; a story to inspire kindness that would hopefully reach other vulnerable children at Christmas.
I was spurred on to publish the story by everyone who read it, I self-published in September 2017 and sold over 7,000 copies in the first 12 weeks. As I toured the book around schools and family events, it became important to me to be able to create positive change for children through stories, working with new authors who have the same beliefs as I do. We are all inspired by the challenges children face and to package these big issues for small readers to digest and discuss with friends, families and schools. This journey is truly life changing! I really hope my stories bring joy and strength to those children who need it most. Sam"
Tarah L. Gear
Tarah had always wanted to write children's stories. Even as a child herself she would always tell her mum that she wanted to be an author when she grew up.
"My dream was to become the author of children's books. It wasn't until I had my own child that I decided to bite the bullet and put pen to paper. I hope that my stories will help inspire and empower children as they grow up into the world. I look forward to sharing more and more stories with children and their families. Tarah x"
Terri Ann Creaser
After working as an actor, setting up a theatre company and having two children, Terri rediscovered her passion to write.
"My own highs and lows as a mother
hugely influence my writing: My daughter was diagnosed with cancer at 21 months. Thankfully she made a full recovery.
However, we found our lives turned upside down after her diagnosis: we were made homeless, and lived in emergency accommodation and around the same time, found out or daughter was autistic. This marked a turning point in my life with a new determination to follow my dreams whilst placing my children at the centre of them.
Motherhood has continued to be an adventure that constantly challenges me to seek out stories that echo the experiences of my own children. Reading to them provides a safe space and a wonderful escape. I love seeing their faces light up as we turn the pages of a new book.”
