A young girl is thrown into small town living after a move from the big city. Her family split apart, an ipod with no wifi, and new friendships to build – how will 11 year old Amber cope?
Gran suggests a good old fashioned pen pal to ease the boredom, and a friendship which started out with a few little fibs soon gets out of control! Will pen pal Millie find out ‘The Truth About Amber'? Amber may be in more trouble than she bargained for!
Amber's multi-generational family - an inventive Grandad, a Grandma who is an adventurous cook, and a mum who's trying her best whilst enduring separation and maybe even divorce - make up this tale of coming of age and forgiveness. Oh! and then there's the boy with his great big lolloping shaggy dog who lives nearby.
BIOGRAPHY UK born, now living in Melbourne (Sometimes the World's most livable city!) Australia.
Mum, Volunteer, Author, Planner Creator, Fibro- Warrior.
Born in beautiful Northumberland, England; lived in Lancashire, Wearside, Kent, and Hertfordshire too. First teaching appointment was in the prettily-named pit-village of Shiney Row, during the Miner’s Strike. After moving to Kent - (The Garden of England) progressed to Deputy Head and Acting Headmistress of a wonderful village school before the birth of a son. Moved to Herts, teaching part-time Special Educational Needs kids. There are many places to associate with life in England - I loved every one, but Northumberland still feels like home.
When my husband's career brought us to Melbourne, Australia, it didn't seem like such a big deal. However, two years turned to four and then twenty! Now Melbourne feels like home too.
I enjoy volunteer work, have written biographies for patients in Palliative Care in the Home, and worked one day a week in a Day Oncology Wig Room. Writing is one of my passions, one that has followed me into adulthood from childhood, resulting in the books you will see here.
I'm now an avid Planner creator too. You'll find those on Etsy.
