My plan was to create a YouTube video reflecting on previous years of the festival. Instead our home was struck with chicken pox. First my youngest had it, then it was school holidays, and then my oldest had it. Having the kids home all the time, has impacted my time to do anything for myself.

It doesn’t matter. Nothing is going to stop me getting excited about this year’s Felixstowe Book Festival. It’s literally starts next Saturday!

When I first attended Felixstowe Book Festival, I dreamt that one day it could be me as an author, Once I published Ocean Heart, I thought maybe my dream would come try but the pandemic struck. The Children’s program was cancelled.

This is the first year since then that they have had a children’s programme, and I’m part of it. More details on my Events page.
