Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see an inspirational video with quotes from lots of famous people including children's authors Philip Pulman and Ursula le Guin. If you love stories, (and who doesn't?) you'll love this You Tube video. The video is one of several by Chris Cade, author of Inscribe Your Life. I've just subscribed to the Inscribe Your Life Programme, so look out for more information on that later or discover it for yourself at www.inscribeyourlife.com I might even post some of the stories I write here later.
Dorothy loves writing and encouraging others to write too! When one of her stories for children won the Pinestein Press Things that go Bump competition she was asked to write three short stories, The Ghost Twin Tales which appeared in the book, Mini Mysteries and Kooky Spookies. Another competition winning story, Munch the Storytelling Cow, was recorded as a podcast by celebrity TV presenter, Gail Porter.
Dorothy is currently studying for an MA in Writing for Children at the University of Central Lancashire and is featured in the UCLan publication Letters to Africa, an exciting publication containing leters, fiction, facts, illustrations and photographs.
