No matter how little money and how few possessions you own, having a dog makes you rich.

Local Mums in St. Albans, Hertfordshire publish a children’s book

4 Jan

I just want to reiterate that Suzy & I are local mums who live in St. Albans, Hertfordshire.  Even though we are equally fabulous (Suzy used to run an artsy jewelery shop) and (I am a jack of all trades) we still are two yummy mummies who have put this children’s book together.

Our children have inspired us to create this story as well as our little dogs, Bud & Roo.

I think that at ‘stay at home’ mums it still is important to be creative.  I work as a part time Counselling Psychologist; however, I enjoy staying at home, sitting in the sun at my desk and writing short stories, writing on my blogs, or putting together ebooks.  And, now nothing is more enjoyable then working on this new project with Suzy.  We were thrilled when we put Bud & Roo’s Spectacular Adventures- The Beach together and can I just say my three children cannot put the book down!

I am sure they are very supportive of my endeavours, but the book is so colourful and of course they can relate to the dogs in the book.

But, this was the main purpose of creating this book- and, that was getting my children interested in reading.

My three year old actually said ‘this is like Rosie’s Walk.’  Now in no way I am comparing our book to Rosie’s Walk by Pat Hutchins; however, she was some inspiration of the design of Bud & Roo.  It is my daughter’s favourite book,  Rosie’s Walk that is.

Anyway, to all of the local mums out there- get out there and achive your dreams- because Suzy & I are on our way!

Meet the characters- Bud & Roo

29 Nov


Meet the protagonists of the book, Bud & Roo’s Spectacular Adventures.  Bud is a Beagle.  He is independent, great at digging and very handsome.  Rosie Roo is a Border Collie.  She is smart and sassy.  She is always up for an adventure.

Bud & Roo are friends (well, most of the time- Rosie Roo likes to protect her stick).  Bud digs for artifacts and Rosie Roo joins him on the path to discovery where the item came from.  They are happy doggies and are inspired by our own pets at home.
