The reason that I’ve been silent on my blog recently, is that my writing-motivation (aka ‘bedtime reading’) slot has been filled by writing a few books for children. The aim was to create interesting stories for older children with low reading ages: high interest age/low reading age. I chose Doug Merlin (our two dogs!) as a pseudonym, and if you are intrigued, search it on Amazon. (Any profits go to charity- my favourite is Magic Heart).
