July Prize Give-Away
We’ve teamed up with Gillian Young to offer you a chance to Win a paperback copy of her latest children’s book – Tammy & Willow.
Gillian Young is a full-time writer of children’s middle-grade fiction. One of her earliest memories was creating a newspaper that included happy stories and fun puzzles – strictly no politics. At high school, she wrote stories about her favourite pop-band, including friends as characters. Gillian’s second passion was art. Following art college, she worked as a Graphic Artist. During this time, she settled down, got married and had two children. Becoming a mother reintroduced her to the magic of children’s fiction. Every night she’d read Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny to her kids. Eventually, she had the idea of writing stories of her own.
To be an author was still her dream – that had never gone away. Snatches of time between going to work and taking care of the children was spent bent over her laptop writing – until 2015.
2015 made her re-evaluate everything. For Gillian, writing was her medicine. Then, she decided to ‘go for it ’ and focus on becoming an author. Much of Gillian’s work is inspired by her golden retrievers who have achieved some fame around the world through their Instagram page.
Gillian lives with her family in Worcestershire. She is currently working on her third book, which is a sequel to her debut: Poppy On Safari.
