Well, after an exceptionally long writing period, I'm pleased to finally announce the publication of The Lost Blackbird.
During the latter half of the 20th century, many British parents who were struggling financially, were offered the chance of a better life for their children by sending them to populate the colonies. Some parents, however, were not even asked permission, their children being shipped across the world without their consent or even knowledge.
Supposedly going to a better life, these children –– some as young as three-years-old –– suffered many forms of terrible abuse.
The Lost Blackbird is a work of fiction but it reflects the harsh reality of child migration. In my fictional characters, I hope to have captured –– apart from their sadness, losses and grief –– some joy and hope for the future.
The Lost Blackbird is on the new-release PROMO price of only £1.99/$2.99 for a limited time only.
