More About the Author

Paula and Barrie have written books and have them published in kindle and paperback through Busy Corner Books in Lincolnshire.

They have also written the true story about their move from the city to the countryside, Breakfast On The Patio, by Sheila Anne Douthwaite. Packed with information about keeping hens, growing vegetables, the natural wildlife and renovating our old Lincolnshire countryside cottage.

Articles published as follows:

2012 - Writers Magazine - 'Diary of a Countryside Mouse' 2012 - The Lincolnshire Poacher Magazine - 'An Inspiring Lincolnshire Cottage' 2012 - Wolds and Marsh Newsletter - 'The Scared Pheasant' 2012 - The Lincolnshire Echo Newspaper 'City Slicker inspired after escaping to the Wolds' feature written by Dawn Hinsley. 2012 - This Is Lincolnshire - Same article as above written by Dawn Hinsley. August 2013 update, they also have articles in Louth Leader Newspaper and Skegness Standard News and another feature in Lincolnshire Poacher Summer 2013.

Busy Corner Books published their first book, A Year In June, in 2011. This is an inspirational journey with countryside animals and strange eccentric characters like, Mrs Lovetta Trussworthy, a supportive and caring old lady who listens to Percy the pheasant, Mrs Corothers, the crow, and lots of other animals to help them feel better. Rantwistle Seepidge is always around somewhere to dampen things down a little and Ernest Wintur-bottome farms far too many Longtails (that's large brown country rats to you and me) - so he eats them for his tea! Winifred, the old barn owl, is always here in the nick of time and Isabella, our Pond Pikelette, is magical and quite unique. Borris the badger spreads gossip like there is no tomorrow and delivers notes, parcel and cakes.

Their next book, also published in 2011, was 'Take from it what you will...', written by the main character of A Year In June, Lovetta Trussworthy. Lovetta writes little moralistic stories about a jealous tawny owl, a sad sunflower, a flustered hen and a bossy seagull to remind us of important things in life.

In 2012, they released their heartfelt story, 'We forgot to tell Jack!' Paula and Barrie wrote this book together to help them say goodbye to their beloved pet dog.

About the Author

I love animals, being close to nature and have a vivid imagination when it comes to writing books. Years ago, I studied to be a counsellor and learned lots about psychotherapy and how feeling affect our behaviour. These valuable processes and interventions of therapy have helped me bring my writing more to life. The idea I have through writing, is to give the reader more of an experience by helping them find their own process of healing within the stories.

I really enjoyed this book. It is a totally different read to what I expected. I really liked the fact that you can dip in and out of it at will, and it doesn't spoil the read.
I think most readers will find as I did that there is a huge benefit in reading the book twice. This doesn't cause problems as it isn't a long book by any means. I don't mean that in a critical way as there is so much of meaningful advice within the stories, it deserves a couple of reads.
This book with beautifully illustrative photographs is a fine addition to your library. One to keep and refer back to time and again. Congratulations to the author.
