CHILDREN'S AUTHOR AND POET - JACQUELINE MEAD
Whatever brought you to this destination I hope you stay awhile and check out all the pages, read some of my poetry, recent reviews and sign up to my fortnightly newsletter.
I am a Children’s Author and Poet from Devon, England the UK, I write children’s stories and have published three books to-date.
I started writing at the age of 54, although I always made up stories for my children as well as reading them well-known books at bedtime. A particular favourite was Funnybones by Janet and Alan Ahlberg. This book is charming, witty, and fun as the skeletons set out to scare someone in the dark of night and end giving themselves a fright.
I made up a story about children flying to the moon and finding it was made of cheese, of course, my story had lots of noises as the rocket when higher and higher. My children would ask for the storytime and again and it is now published as two princes and a princess fly to the moon.
Aimed at children 3 – 7 years. The books are written with a familiar look and theme to each other.
When a child picks up any of the books, they will see a similar start and end, hopefully, this will make them one of their favourite bedtime books to read.
My children’s books are written in rhyming verse.
In addition to writing, I love spending time with my grandkids, cooking, and running.
