Diversity in children's books

We live in a time where strong female characters and characters with diverse cultural heritage should appear on the pages of children's books and their voices should be heard. I am happy to say that Talendia: The Lost Boy is one of these books and that it is now available to buy at https://www.cantputitdown.co.uk/talendia-the-lost-boy-by-a-e-colmer.html to promote diversity in children's books.

These days

I know I have been quiet for a little while but I have a good reason for that. We have a new family member: a very playful and naughty Newfoundland puppy and she requires all our attention at the moment. When she sleeps I usually work on the illustrations of the sequel of the first Talendia book, The Forgotten Folk which will be longer and even more adventurous (if that's possible) than the first book was. :-) Stay tuned!
