Who is Ishbel Macmillan the comical children’s author?

24 Jun

Born and brought up near Glasgow, I have lived in Harpenden for many years.  Apart from my family my other main love is singing – it is very levelling.
The same seems to be true of animals – they just want to be accepted for their own qualities.  In middle age I trained as a Midwife, a wonderful profession for those who believe women are all very different, and should be treated as such.  My motto has been “throw away the books -do it your own way”.  The same has been true of my caring of animals.
I have always enjoyed a sense of the ridiculous, and I just love to take real-life situations and see the funny side, not to mention an overwhelming wish to puncture the egos of those who attempt to abuse their power over the rest of us.
I particularly love to make children see similarly, while also trying to instil in them the values of love and respect for their fellow creatures, both human and animal.

Archie came to us in 2001, a rescue dog from an animal charity.  He had been abandoned and was found by Wardens in a park in St Albans.  All of my current and future stories are based on factual events.

Our beloved son, Scott died in 2007. A good friend suggested I start a healing project, and so began The Archie Books!

Welcome Ishbel Macmillan one of our new children’s authors

10 Jun

Archie Comes Home is a new book that will soon be out to buy written by Ishbel Macmillan and illustrated by Steven Hill.

We have consulted Ishbell to self-pubish her book under her own label ‘Dohn’t, be silly publications.’  The book is about a little Terrier who is brave on the outside, but a bit wobbly on the inside.

Listening to Ishbel read her book made me think that she would be a really good candidate for The Children’s Hour radio and/or TV.  This is one lady you won’t want to miss out on!

Please start following a new adventure!  Archie Comes Home.
