I’m very pleased to have Jenny Woolsey, children’s author & speaker, and tutor, as a guest on my blog. Jenny is also an advocate for facial differences, mental illness and inclusive education.
In 2018 I published two children’s novels, Daniel Barker: By Power or Blight, and, Amy and Phoenix. These are two very different novels but exemplify my theme of difference, diversity and disability.
Daniel Barker could be classed as a fun horror, and Amy and Phoenix, a heart-warming fantasy.
The books are about…
Thirteen-year-old Daniel Barker has a magical book from Egypt which gives him 99 wishes. The wishes must be used to make the world a better place. If not, the Mummy’s Blight will be awakened.
Dan is like a superhero, until he wishes for a fire at school to impress Charmaine, the cutest cheerleader. Things then start getting crazy and out-of-control.
Is it the Mummy’s Blight and how will Dan stop his favourite teacher from becoming a zombie?
Eleven-year-old Amy Pringle lives on a farm. She knows all the animals by name and can talk to them like Doctor Doolittle. Amy is looking forward to her favourite ewe, Edna, giving birth. When she sees her dad with his gun, she knows something is wrong.
Amy must think of a way to save Phoenix, the three-legged lamb’s life.
After her sister Hannah, posts a video of Phoenix on YouTube and it goes viral, Amy thinks all her problems are solved. Little does she know what is about to happen.
Will Amy be able to save Phoenix after all?
Both of these books sound wonderful, Jenny. Thank you so much for chatting about them.
