A new book about foster care and play therapy.

I have just heard that my first book will be published. It is a story about a little boy who goes into foster care and in time meets a Play Therapist. The next stage is to find an illustrator.

I am very excited as it is challenging for foster parents and therapists to find books that the children they live/work with can relate to. I hope that this will be one of those books.

I will post the news here as it occurs.
