White Gates Adventures, Book 3, Winds and Wonders is now published. Owing to a few technical issues it took longer to emerge than we had planned, but it is now out there. You can buy it from your usual bookseller or order it here at a discounted price of £8 + postage.
I am also running a three for £21 offer (+ postage) on the paperback versions. You can order one each of all three of the books, or any combination of titles. Order through PayPal or contact me through this website.
Don’t forget the free additional adventure, Cutting Edge, only available online by signing up for a very occasional email news bulletin where you can learn about future offers.
If you would like me to come and speak to your group or at your event, I would be pleased to receive an invitation. I can speak either about my writing or my links in South Sudan, or a combination of both. I sell books at these events with 33% going to a charity – either one of your choice or Confident Children (see below).
Distance is not usually a problem – I like an adventure and don’t seek expenses! I am looking forward to an invitation from Scotland, perhaps, or maybe France (I can manage a bit of French). In June 2017 I plan to visit the USA, so now’s the time to book me in the ‘new world’.
Confident Children out of Conflict, South Sudan
In October 2015 and February 2016, I spent time in Juba in South Sudan. I worked for Bishop Gwynne College and visited Confident Children out of Conflict.
This project helps girls of all ages who are at risk. Most of them have been living on the streets in Juba. They come to the centre traumatised, abused, hungry and in ill-health. The centre takes them in, addresses their immediate problems, pays for them to go to school if they are of school age, gives them counselling, and, above all, love. Dedicated care is given by the project leader, Catherine, and her team of volunteers that are both local and from around the world.
The project is entirely dependent on the gifts of caring people. I give a percentage of the sale of the books I sell as the author. In 2015, I was able to hand over £398.15. Some people have made donations too. I, and they, are enormously grateful for this support. It is a drop in the ocean in South Sudan, but it is changing the lives of a few girls whose future would otherwise be very bleak indeed.
So, if you want to help, buy more books – or send a donation either through me, or direct. http://confidentchildren.org
