My lovely chum Sarah Houldcroft of VAforAuthors, the virtual assistant for authors, had been in touch asking if I had a children’s short story up my sleeve to ‘donate’ for a new book being published in aid of Diabetes.
I actually had and guess what, it’s been accepted and I’m totally thrilled! However, they asked if I had an illustration to go with it, I didn’t, but on a wet Saturday in June and feeling inspired following my trip to Lanzarote with my sis, I had bought myself an easel and taken my paints out. So I thought, do one! Here he is, his name is Hercules, and you can see precisely why he is the perfect Manky Unicorn!
The story book is called Windmills and Paper Boats soon to be published by www.ALTLAPublishing.com
