Everyone has a story inside them. Some of us tell it in a book or a play or on the stage, football pitch or boardroom. But most of us live our story, telling it to our loved ones, every day, year by year… the point is each story gets told and appreciated.
I have heard many wonderful stories and have learned to use the book as my medium. Let me share that way with you in a series of real-time posts, starting with an idea and ending (hopefully) with a beautiful book.
If you have thought of writing or illustrating your own book, or if you are just curious, then this real-time project will be of use before you get in touch.
All you have to do is follow the blog for regular monthly updates on the project. Please comment, spread the word and get involved!
Coming up in the first post; where ideas come from.

There are now nearly 1,000 animals across North America and of course there is much work to be done to make sure they not only survive, but thrive.
Good luck to the bandits of the prairies!
