With apologies to the Little Engine, and a very happy and successful 2018 to you all!
It is with great fun that I am working on my second year with the Open University and intending to complete my MA in Creative Writing by October of this year. But what has this to do with my membership of Wire? As a children’s author, writing historical fiction for children, some set in Shropshire, I decided to widen my appeal by writing for grown-ups too, and I shall be well on the way to completing an historical adventure for adults, set in Shrewsbury in the 14th century, by the time the course is completed.
Sadly, my children’s writing has been put on hold. However, I hope to complete River Dark, the sequel to Candle Dark, my story about river thieves, mine explosions, and a pit pony driver in the Blists Hill mine, in time for Christmas!
