Spooky Tale - Special Times

A Wickstead Watch

Once upon a time I took my class on a walk around the local neighbourhood, it ended with the teacher (me), going home feeling unwell. (NOT Coronavirus)

My mumI published a special edition of the book for my mothers 90th birthday and my sons wedding in La Nucia, Spain.Wedding in La Nucia

With my brothers wedding too, 2018 certainly was a special year. Certainly better than 2020.

Over the summer of 2020, while children have been in lockdown, I have offered a signed copy of each of my childrens story books.

You can hear the special edition on YouTube


September it is the turn of A Spooky Tale,

When I returned to school the children asked what made me feel unwell.

"I don't know, what do you think?" I replied. Well it wasn't the coronavirus.

We came up with a few ideas and wrote a story together, the class were all named in the original book.

I kept the class book and read it in class for many years.

Then eventually, i updated it and publish it. This year I was thrilled when the book recieved a Silver Medal from 'The Wishing Shelf Book Awards'.
