I’m very excited to share the cover for my new novella, Owen and the Soldier! I’m very proud of this little book which is being published by Barrington Stoke in June. The artwork is by the supremely talented illustrator, Mike Lowery 😊.
Here is a little bit about the story…
Owen and his mum are struggling. It’s just the two of them now and they’re finding it difficult to ask for the help they need. When Owen discovers a crumbling stone soldier in a memorial garden in the local park, it feels like he finally has someone he can talk to. But the town council can’t see how important the soldier is and they want to remove him. Owen’s so scared that
he’ll be left on his own again, but can he find the courage he needs to save the soldier before it’s too late?
